I have finally managed to work out the geometry of the radar tower and its
supports!! This has now been fitted and folds down as per the original
boat along with the main section of the spray screen.
The radar scanner is a modified servo running on 1.5 volts to give a scale
speed of rotation. The main starboard radio aerial on the superstructure
is wired to the radio receiver to give excellent radio range/reception.
This last picture shows the first of the crew (Action Man) as modified by
my wife to represent the current RNLI lifeboat Crew in their all weather
The next stage of the build will be all the smaller deck fittings and all
regards for now Mike Pendlebury (gribeauval)
