Thanks Ian,
To load pictures I will have use one app to change file type and another to resize that file. Don't full understand why but , This is the only way I can get photos loaded via iPad.

T888, on an iPad I just email a pic to myself. When you press send it asks you to choose the size of the pic. Just choose the closest value below 300mb. When you receive the resized pic hold your finger on it and it will give you the option to save the image. Save it and use that pic to post on here. No apps required. Takes far longer to tell than to do.

Yep that's just what I do, windows resizes the resolution rather than the physical size it sounds a bit long winded but it's probably no longer than using a resizing app,  hope you had a good exhibition at Action Stations Dave.  :-))

Joe,

Don't forget a retaining rail for the bookcase {-)
Bit different to the Minesweepers open air types
(Ton class) that I used to mend in Port Edgar.

Thanks for your comments,


I'm considering whether to start offering my fittings for sale,  as I'm retiring next year I will have more free time to make fittings.

It should also help subsidise your hobby! Even if it just keps you in Humbrol/Paints then that can't be bad?

Thanks,
I also should have said , the Radar drive motor forms apart of the main radar support post, this has a planetary gear box, which is the black section of the radar post. This type of arrangement gives 6 rpm.
