G/M Dave  sorry if i gave the wrong impression on the connectors as these ones are still my old one that i have enough to just use on the cam switches but the ones you found hav'nt come yet  but im really pleased that you found them as i could not get them anywhere as used to get them from maplins but now they have gone well i was getting desprate to find some more as these are very tiny but they will carry 12v with ease an very handy to just unplug an remove the unit should the need arise as it sometimes does
have a nice day Dave cheers

Looking good now Chris, wiring is a pig at times. Nice to see you use Layouts as well brilliant service.  To answer your question on Vic, yes red bridge lights, nav, radar (going to be a right pig to build), fogohorn, action stations alrm and poss smoke gen

HI Bob  yes wireing can get you some times especially  as i made a right b*lls up on my rear section wireing but its let me down by breaking at the hull jiont plug so got to all come out an be reworked  but i keep it all in my head as  a boaty freind came over the other day sayin he wants to buy her when im ready to let her go an saying that i ought to do wireing dioagrams but if i did that i d never get an work done on her as for me its one circut at a time that way you know what wires got to go where an feed whats what an did i see you say in your ship that you got it down to a dozen wires as if you are goin to fit all that in what you said above it will take more wires than that as my steam unit has got about 6 wires on it an thats just one unit but i really hope you do fit all this workin features in her as that brings the model to life  :-))  a
n yes that layouts shop is brilliant as jen phones them up for me an i pay by card an sometimes what i oredered is here the very nxt day they are very good an i'll use them again if i need to  :-))

HI ALL well thats that right hand cam switch all wired up  so looking down on it the left cam switch is for all the 6v units in the front mainly but some wires will double up an go through to the stern section an the right hand cam switch is all 12v wireing  through to the stern section mostly to fit on to other voltage reducers such as 12v -9v -6v -5V -3V AN 12v to 24v if i decide to fit another steam unit in the stern section for the rear funnel but that will be thought of in the new yr all that remain to do in the bow section is to fit in the  LEDS voltage checkers AN the wireing exstions to reach the r/x fitted in the bow
chris  :-))  an ive now got the main 44 pins plug so i can put all that stern section wirein to rights as the wirein i have fitted has failed on the hull jiont plug an broke so its all got to come out an be rewired but that will be after my eye op as they have had a concelalion so they are goin to op on my eye on dec 23 so no tiger work for a bit just got to hope things go ok

I had mine done last November  I was on two drops (but a different two every other time) eight times a day for 4 weeks. Had to keep a chart to make sure I didn't miss any, but not everyone's eyes are the same, I had to have a retina reattached earlier in the year and have had uveitis (inflammation inside the eye) for 7 or 8 years, so I think most of my eye drops were to suppress any reaction from them after the cataract op.
I can certainly see a lot better since the op though, definitely worth it.
