I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Cracking job of the radio mast Maurits.... I am almost surprised it does not now act as a booster for you wi-fi signal in the room :)

Lovely job of the rocks and surounding scenics too

"Second big job was to make my own impression of Sandy heath radio transmitter using brass. not scaled otherwise it wouldn't fit but it looks alright"

Chicken, it's only 240Metres high (787ft) so that would roughly scale as 1.5 metres high model on top of a 160 foot above sea level hill. :bounce:



Fantastic modelling :no:

Back to working out how to build a Type 84 radar Aerial for my layout...

Youtube time

click on the image please :)
I clicked on the image and nothing happened: it's just a JPEG.  But then I noticed the hyperlink underline in the text above.  That's really snazzy video editing!  It looks as though you do that for a living!
With kind regards

Nice work.

You need to add a couple of BASE jumpers at the top.....and an ambulance parked at the bottom!  :worried:

Cheers Jon  :)

Congratulations on getting the mast vertical, something I probably couldn't have managed :no:
Looks very good.

Evening all.

Finally able to finish this little project, thought it was an easy one but turned out to be rather complicated.



It's removable if needed.







Next stop is to start the branch line above the main helix ;)
