Title: Dutch Courage lighting
Post by: balders on June 01, 2011, 11:32:15 AM
Hi all,
      Can anyone give me an idea of the correct mast lighting for a vessel such as this.The model has about 15 whitemetal lights for the mast in the kit.I will be replacing these with grain of wheat in Robbe lenses.

      I am just looking for an arragement that will be a fair representation of the lighting for this type of vessel underway.

                                                                                                                      Thanks Andy  :-))

Brian at MMM sells kits complete with resistors and the brass casings to fit them in, its the best way. I find them very good.

Hi,
   Thanks for that.I will have a chat with Brian at Doncaster on Saturday and see if he can persuade me to part with my money.
