    All that detail into such a small and fragile section of the ship, truly masterful. Keep it up!

    While on the subject of piano wire or very thin steel wire, if anyone knows where to buy from please let us know as I too have been long out of stock. Do music instrument shops sell this thing? It is piano wire after all?

    problem solved

    Post  in nannu pec on Sun Jun 01, 2014 9:37 am

    Solved the problem....got some insulin hypodermic thingie .... Laughing  Laughing  Laughing ...snapped off the front end...as the needles don't come off like the ones which are commonly used.....burnt the plastic away and presto ...a very fine whip aerial...
    Now for the hull aerials Have to improvise something else...as these are ok for the island but too short for hull aerials...

    Fantastic detail Louis, even at that scale.

    No wonder you are the envy of others. (foreigners)
