Hope this image help, its very straightforward, if you go onto the warship R&D there is a drawing of similar set up and a link for the transistor.


Bob

If you needed to increase the salinity/conductivity of any bilge water whilst running in a fresh water river, creek or inland dam etc, you could always sprinkle a teaspoon of fine or ground Table Salt into the lower bilge area where any water could collect

The fresh water on contact with the fine salt powder would near immediately alter the di-electric potential of this water & so activate the water level switch function

Hi There! Sorry to butt in: I found this thread while I was researching the Tiger class to improve a Shipbucket profile and Google Images took me to some of the gorgeous model shots herein. This is great project! I can't even begin to imagine building a 1/72nd warship: I can barely avoid losing motivation in the middle of a 1/72nd tank!

Anyway, I wanted to chip in my twopenn'th on the Type 278 height-finding radar controversy. I agree that it makes sense that it wouldn't just rotate all the time and would be specifically pointed at targets, however, there's film that proves otherwise. If you look at this Pathé News video on Youtube of HMS Glamorgan, you can quite clearly see the 278 rotating continuously through 360 degrees. Now whether it did that all the time, or whether it sometimes stopped to height-find a target I couldn't say.

The video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7sv9ODO-YU
If the link doesn't work for some reason, the exact title is: HMS Glamorgan - Computer Ship Of The Future (1967)

The 278 bits start at about the 4 minute mark, but the whole thing's only 7 minutes long and hilariously dated so watch the whole thing for a laugh!

Good luck with the Tiger build!  :-))

HI 
Weaver MANY  THANKS for your post an don't worry about butt in  an yes ive seen this vid before when I was talkin to Bob about it as a friend who lives in portsmoth  sent me the same vid an yes again it does show the 278 radar rotatein through 360  degrees an I think you are right it proberly does that an when it finds a target then it stops an does height findin but at the moment im a long way from getting that built so i'll sort that when I come to it  but thanks for droppin in on my thread an hope to see you on here again an I will soon post some more piclinks in a day or so as they are all in the camera just got to resize them an load them onto imgbb then i'll load onto site if you want t see the latest pics an many thanks for your kind comments an glad you like the build  :-))

HI Bob well ok how do you think I should model it ?  no disrespect to you intended as you know more about the ship  than me remember im just the modeler an I was postin my build on another forum an an bloke comes onto my tiger thread sayin ive got all my bridge S/S to far forward an I told him that its right by the plans an he also said that ive got the armour plate wrong as well so from what ive been told tiger was in the ship yard a long time bein built so maybe they made changes to the ship over the time of the build  an nice to see you Bob ATB STAY SAFE  Chris
