HI Backearther
its nice to see you found my tiger build then an yes im pleased with how its coming on as i have been building this ship for near 3yrs now started the build in late 2018 an im only now starting to do the eletrics an i also have to build the gun turrets so it will be about another 2 years before she will sail on the water as my NIMITZ  build was 7 years as they take a long time when things are goin to work in them an thank you for your nice comments an yes i hope you do follow the build like i am going to follow your build
BEST WISHES to you sir  :-))  ps im on this site nearly every day so if you want to talk about the models i will be be on some time in the day

an here the wirein harness is just laid out on the hull to make sure its long enough to go the lenght of the ship bow section an while it was altogeather i did an eletric test with a circut tester to make sure all pins in the plugs will carry eletric an they did as some times there can be a dodgy one

AN here stern shot of the wierin harness an yes the wires are here in the rainbow colours as i should done the front ones as well but the wires were late in cominin the post so i used the grey wires but no worryies on that as they all carry eletricity an these will all have to be soldered onto the tiny eletric plugs so 88 wires to do (phew)

Hey,Chris. Are you a some kind of electric engineer as to make such a complicated wiring work in the loooong hull.??
I suppose,without this kind of electrical knowledge,it might be so difficult even to figure out the electrical design.. O0 :-)
I do not know any words to express my amazing impression on the system. !! Super Dreadnought class !! :-)) :o

HI [/size]Kiyoshi  no im not an eletrical person an im not very good on eletric thing but how can i exsplain this it really just comes out of my mind an  fingers an it all works sort of like magic really perhaps thats what ive been gifted at in my life i dont know but ive wired up all my big ships an just learned as i go along an  all the wires are circuts an jump circuts  but i must be carefull now as im at the complex stage of wireing things up so i must think an plan ahead to make sure i dont make any mistakes but i will post some pics soon when i get all the wireing all soldered onto the mini plugs an im lookng  forward to seeing your build come on as i love to study your pics [/font]BEST WISHES to you Sir [/font]chris [/font]

HI ALL well on the last pics i was just getting the accessories wireing harness ready to put in the ship an its now been put in the hull an ive been on a soldering marthon  of soldering 44 wires to plug sockets in the bow section an again another 44 wires in the stern section so 88 wires soldered all told but my wife jen an i tested them with a 12v current goin through each wire an me with a circut tester to see if the wires carry power ok an well out of 44 wires only one was a problem so thats about 98% succsess so im happy with that but if any more of them rainbow ribbin wires fail as the grey ones are all ok then i will replace the rainbow wires an here in this link pic is the 44 wires goin down into the hull bottom to pass under the battery bay an steam unit an then they split up in to 24 wires on the starb side an 20 wires on the port an here is the bow section from the hull jiont plug
