Andy,
Regarding filler caps, it's worth going online for the 1/12th scale car fuel fillers [like on an AC Cobra], there might just be something there or even the 'truck' type sites [1/14th scale?]. Also, some of the Japanese car upgrade companies like Hobby Link Japan [HLJ] might just have something. Otherwise, when I get there, I might machine them in 'ali' and polish - the shine will keep and certainly see me out!!

I'm pleased enough how these turned out with no sign of a join line. Tamiya primer is very good stuff.
Now the holes are filled I will leave further detail for another day.




Attention turned to the aerial mast brackets

Last night I prepared some brass rod with threaded ends in preparation to make those aerial knuckle fittings. A fortuitous trip to Leeds Model shop this morning resulted in the above instead. Much faster and I'm sure you'll agree that with chrome spray look very realistic.
This is Humbrol Chrome, is there a product I can protect it with to prevent tarnish?


The Graupner bits were 8.49 for 10


I put this in my watch list a while ago in response to forum posts.

I'm in her good books today having spent half of yesterday doing jobs for her  O0
Someone just asked this morning where to get the hinges.


I bought here but anyone local can have my left overs at cost price http://www.modelshopleeds.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=30673&gclid=Cj0KCQiA-4nuBRCnARIsAHwyuPp1psYIvndKRX9VIeFCXpjmmlczQlH2ANPQTunNM3UjfMN7PSOSOxYaAl7eEALw_wcB

Lots of advice offered on the facebook group and I've opted for the suggestion of epoxy.
Not final fixed yet




Epoxy not too obvious internally supporting multiple faces

Now glued in place. Only time will tell how robust? but if they break I will put a SS servo rod right through with a nut and washer in the cabin

Took a while to think of a way to make boat hook and Aerial stowage brackets but I think they will do. I could cut a slot in them yet. I've used a key hole shape so the rods snap into place securely.  3mm styrene

I've just placed another order with Knupfer and whilst browsing I found the brass profile that will do for the cable retainers on the bow keel I hope

I'm happy with these and I feel like making the TEE next so I can make the support arms to suit

Thank you Ned. It's only recently that I've tried combining styrene and brass with CA. Seems to be holding up well and no heat involved which means no hours of cleaning up my soldering  {-)

So on with the TEE
Started last night and it's by no means a 5 min job.
I opted for 3mm styrene as this gives plenty of meat for rounding the edges
pictures so far












I used a semi circular profile cut into quadrants for this

This is the best way to prepare for making the side support arms

Thin brass rod used to find correct angle


4mm tube used for hydraulic arm attachment points


Fixed in position with 5 min epoxy

Sometimes developing a method is like wading through mud but I think I've solved the next step.


K&S box profile





Painstakingly filled out to a C section



To fit three pieces of Styrene comfortably so it slides without being sloppy





So now I have something to build upon with soldered parts. This will of course be drilled to look like the real deal



Also started on the top anchors
