Tapered rod
« on: June 08, 2014, 03:55:58 pm »

Hey folks, I'm trying to get hold of some material to make the antenna to finish my Atlantic challenger. The one I have looks like tapered fibreglass rod but I can't seem to find anything like this on line. Anyone know where I can get something like this from. Or will I have to machine it myself.

How about stretched sprue?
