    HMS Cottesmore in 1/48 scale.
    Hi Guys, Back again with another instalment to the log. Whilst still playing around with the plastic card the mezzanine deck was next. Cut out the deck to shape, and then made the deck support beams these were made from 5mm strips of plastic card glued to form a square. It was a little tricky but with the aide of one of the wife's knitting needles that fitted nicely in side I was able to get them mostly square. I had to make this deck so that it was removable that way I could still get at the sweep deck openings, also because I wanted to have white and red lighting I had to come up with a way that they could be powered when the mezzanine deck was fitted. The solution was to use some PCB Headers that way when I placed the mezzanine deck on it would just plug in. The wife never did get her knitting needle back as I cut it up into small pieces and used it for the location pins on the
    deck support pillars
    (luckily to this day she has still not noticed it missing and when she does I will blame the dog.) You can see in the photos the PCB Headers and how It comes apart, I was not to fussy about the wiring of the surface mount LED's as when fitted it is difficult to see them.
