Not thinking  >>:-( <*< I thought id need a crown gear on the top to drive the main front radar but after a bit of thought I was thinking well I   just don't know how big a gear I'll need so I fitted this gear as a try out when I've fitted the R-MOTOR

An a close up shot so all these gears will need to be tested as when one gear is fitted on to another it revolves in the opposite direction so quite a bit of patience is gonna be required to get this all working right

Technical work. I like that mast. You have put a lot of work into that and you haven't even finished it yet.

Chris
I don't quite follow the large boxes you have on the mast, as they do not appear on the drawings or on images of the real ships., I assume it is poetic licence to hide the gears  included some of the RN model showing the mast set up.

HI Bob  you have answered your own question as i said i was usein a bit of moddelers licence  to get these radars workin hence the gearboxs which when i get all the railings an such on they wont be so noticeable

Cheers Chris
looks like there will be a world shortage of cogs and gears by time you are done, along with the rack and pinion for CVA antennae operation that I have used.


At long last we are now allowed back to sailing, been to long, but no car for at least another week  :((
