Kim kindly permitted me to send some photos of my build to fill the gap until he will be able to show his new items.
I have used carbon tubes of 5 and 2mm diameter for the telecom mast. The sliders were soldered using square brass tubing from K&S metals which were opened on one side using the milling machine. They fit into the slotted black profiles which I made from HDPE black plastic (Kim had the idea, so that we do not need to paint it and it would show no scratches when being used). I have fixed the profile by 1 mm countersunk screws from Knupfer (stainless steel). The complete item is workable but I probably will not use that for transportation. The boot of my hatchback car is high enough if I put the wheelhouse and the hull separately in.
As for the backrest I built a 'box' from 1 mm styrene scrap and put a thin layer of white milliput on the top. Thus the surface does look not perfectly even as per the original.

Thanks Arno, as usual some very nicely 'engineered' parts that go together to make a very realistic telecomms working mast. This will give some 'food for thought' to other scratch builders here for their Shannon builds.  :-))


Much appreciated,
Kim

I have spent some time on the lights for the telecom mast. The body of the lights were machined on the lathe using translucent acrylic rod (diameter 5 mm, drilling a hole of 3.5 mm inside, height 4 mm). The bottom and top plates were turned from 8 mm knitting-needles down to a diameter of 6 mm.
The deck light is fixed using M 1.2 bolts from Prime Miniatures UK in a brass tube with 1.2 diameter inside which makes the item adjustable. The SMD LED is equipped with 3 LEDs on the same chip which can be soldered separately. I have soldered all of them parallel, so this gives a very bright shine :-) The body was shaped from 4 mm styrene scrap using sanding sticks. The inside was hollowed out using burrs of different sizes.
