Working Radar for Many Scales - Posted: 6 months ago by bilzin
Building a German Police launch right now and thought that the radar scanner components were a bit 'heath robinsonish', so decided to see if I could make an alternative unit.

Photo 1 shows the Radar scanner parts obtained from MMB (ebay) for the princely sum of ONE POUND !!!!! plus 28p postage, and construction is of a medium soft resin that isn't prone to breaking or splitting when shaped or drilled, and a short length of 2mm brass rod becomes the drive shaft. This particular unit has a 44mm sweep bar but there are many other sizes available

Photo 2 shows the drive motor which operates on voltages between 1.5 and 6v, ideal for the control driver which is the next item. Available from saih.tan on Ebay for under 7 pounds, and if the motor is mounted on a removable bracket as I have done, this unit can be used in several models without the need for major 'surgery', the motor and radar shaft being connected with a short piece of rubber tubing

Photo 3 shows the receiver driven radar motor speed control which operates from an auxiliary receiver channel and takes the motor voltage from the main receiver supply, thus obviating the need for a separate supply and switch.
This unit is available from www.mr-rcworld.co.uk and costs a staggering 14.50 post free sheesh !

I must add here that I am in NO way connected to any of the suppliers mentioned here, but just though some other modellers may be interested in 'home brew' accessories and suchlike.

Brass Fittings - Posted: 7 months ago by bilzin
I don't know if this is of interest to other modellers, but I was trawling through Ebay's wares when I found this supplier and, on a whim, decided to once again try my hand at using etched brass parts. As you might see, not exactly the biggest of fittings, but they really test the patience and skill.
Also in one of the photos is the brass bending tool I use and the supplier can be found at http://stores.ebay.co.uk/models-parts-shop?_trksid=p2047675....

Thanks again for posting that ebay vendor. I needed two signal searchlights in that scale for my US Coast Guard 210' WMEC Cutter USCGC VIGOROUS (WMEC-627) model. Right on!
Response by circle43nautical on the 3rd Jan 2018
AS PREVIOUSLY POSTED, I ORDERED A PAIR OF BRASS SEARCHLIGHTS, AND RECEIVED THEM RECENTLY. THET ARE AS ADVERTISED; VERY DELICATE, BUT HIGHLY DETAILED AND PRECISELY MADE. BRAVO ZULU!
Response by SelwynWilliams on the 21st Jan 2018
