HMS Phoebe/Hero
« on: November 04, 2022, 05:35:57 pm »

A few shots of my Phobe/Hero build, coming on nicely but getting cold in the dockyard. The wires hanging from foremast are for lights and radar, the hangar roller door is coming on and hopefully work, making it was easier than I thought, just need to find a cunning method of getting down, up is ok  {-)

Well 8 months into this build and here is where I am, all motors fitted, ballast test done, electrics fitted and all LED in place. now starting the finer details, I think this will be a good model to sail.

She looks every part a Leander and the ‘hero’ of the series. Keep up the excellent work :-))

HI Bob she's lookin good an i see you have a nice little wasp chopper on the flightdeck that will look good when she is sailin an i see you have fitted on your red A/C Light's on the mast top great stuff an i also see you have bought some dapol model railway figures for the crew members as i  also bought these as they are very detailed figures an easy to convert to sailors as they will bring your model to life i find an people often remark sayin oh love the crew figures as its a giude to how big the ship is when my NORFOLK is on show at the pond well happy sailin

Arghhhhh
just done what I thought was good job following the Jecobin plans for the spurnwater, then on browsing my shots of Phoebe I took at Den Helder It hit me, the plans are wrong :(  so today has been very sharp chisel tapping it all off, thankfully no damage and its now much easier to replace.
Moral if you have the real vessel images, go by that.

Quick video of the 965 Radar as fitted to main mast on my HMS Phoebe/Hero.. Quite pleased as it is only 1rpm out from full size speed.

Looking the part, well done. Pretty slow speed compared to the 967/968 aerial on the Type 22's come to think of it.....

No you are correct, I was not bothered about rotation direction, as it was trying to get the RPM spot on or as near as possible.  Once it is fitted and hard wired then all will be correct.
