I just tried this idea for the safety lines. Using Graupner 10mm turnbuckles. I will also use a number of these for between stanchions.


Nothing but doubled back electrical wire with heat shrink.
I've not made the metal backplates for the anchor points yet.

Google Graupner 492.1  about £15 for 10

I feel I am going to do all stanchion lines the same way which would require 18 turnbuckles total. Although lacking in detail it does mean that there is largely less metal to metal contact and paint chipping.
I just wish there was a silver heat shrink.
I've ordered 1mm stainless steel rod for the safety line anchors rather than the brass pictured.


EDIT
It just occurred to me that I can use stainless rod on the brass stanchions too as I'll be fitting them into the accurately drilled holes with CA that if I fit one end of a turnbuckle as appropriate before gluing it will save a lot of other work. (only to the ones that have a tensioner)

would you be able to use white heat-shrink and either silver paint, or a silver paint pen?

 {-) {-)  That's me in the black book!


Have to say, I'm really enjoying the forum. Does a lot for the old bap - just to escape into my own wee world for a period of time. So much to read and take in. Keep up the great build  :-)) :-))

Thanks Kim
Unfortunately the brass isn't thin enough to create the required number of steps of the real ones but they will do I think.


I can easily add the screen wash jet to half of them. I just hate making 10  %%

Arno and I share a phrase for these occasions.............'gently, gently, catchy monkey.......'. That's a good start and the detail will look good against the windows Andy. That will give some other folks the idea to start theirs on a day when other jobs cannot be done.

Once I have a full one completed I can create a template for the three holes below each window. It's important that they look correct in the parked position and its not really a measure that can be done off the plan.


For the drive shaft I used 1mm rod then the next two sizes of brass sleeve on that.

Now first I'm thinking YES!
Then I'm thinking this square section has a lot of meat on it to sand some shaping.
Then I'm thinking add a small T to the square  :-))


Cheers

Re above
I could have followed Kim with the attachment but I use my vertical drill absolutely loads so the stand alone miller was best for me.
The compound bed attachment is very well priced on amazon prime

Maybe useful to others
I chose to buy and use a keyless chuck for my baby drill. I cannot fault it in anyway, it fits the tiniest of bits and has never come loose.

A big revelation!
I have in the past almost exclusively used K&S brass.
All my railings and stanchions have been 3.18mm or 1/8 so you would think that running a 3.5mm die up it should be easy? well it hasn't been with K&S
I don't know why as both K&S and the brass I got recently form Macc Models are precise in size but the MACC stuff threads easily with a squeaky noise as I rapidly thread it in a fraction of the time.
I thought too good to be true so I just checked it for bending and that too is excellent.  :-))
