At last after many false starts my Leander now has fully functional roller hangar door.
made from plastic strips backed by tape to create flexible join.
Winced up and down by micro motor with right angle gear box rotating at 18rpm
The plastic card box is a slip in module that once in the hangar recess can not be seen as plastic card, this facilitates removal for any repairs.

Today HMS Phoebe/Hero had her maiden basin trials, and pleased to say she flew through it, with no issues, only a gentle touch on the throttles and she sailed a dream.

She'll be as stunning as the real thing, nothing beats the look of a Leander on the water - looking forward to further updates, keep up the good work (I hope it will give me the much-needed impetus to finish my model of HMS Argonaut !).

Very graceful like the real class Rob. Was the sloping section of F'ocsle considered a failure or success? While making it easier to access the bows for casting off etc a slope in rough weather must have been more troublesome (assuming it was worked on in anything but a calm of course!)

Due to the icy conditions in the garage not a lot done, but slightly warmer weather has allowed work to restart on the superstructure.  Now trying to work out the best way to make a tiny urinal for this area  {-)

Yes Chris she a few others played Hero hence the title. One side of the model will say Phoebe and the other Hero.  Just to wind the rivet counters up. I was on her when she returned after the Pipa Alpha disaster.
