    WOOW!!! Outstanding work. What a difference when painted, they look totally awesome, if there wasn't the coin i would say they were in 72nd scale. Prosit tassew. How the hell do you manage to paint them so accurately in that minute scale? They are finished so neat. And those decals, i would have sent everything to hell. You will always be the best!

    Lou, i have no more words to describe your work, i have used all the adjectives i know of, saying more would be repetitive but that is a true masterpiece. Why don't us use fine steel wire for the aerials? How long do they need top be? I have some lengths but they are pretty short.

    Lou i have very few short pieces. Can you tell me what lengths you need and i will look for them for you. The pieces i have are very short, i had cut them up into short lengths and then did not use them in the end.

    Steel wire I don't have  Sad 

    Piano wire (if not the same thing) I have, even though I don't think it is the required thickness  Sad 

    However, if I don't FORGET, I will bring a length of it with me tomorrow  Twisted Evil

    will try to locate some, used to have loads but it seems they got lost in the packaging box limbo when moving home. havnt really looked for them yet as i now use the tapered brass types. on solution you could try is get a bicycle brake line the thin ones uncoil one and straighten by putting one end in a cordless drill chuck and tie the other end to something rigid

    re HORNET another beauty in the making.
