Mast(erbalster) part 4

This time I've been doing more work to the mast.

I've made the H aerial using various bits of styrene, aluminium tube and brass rod.  On the basis that a picture speaks a thousand words...

and after

The lights all work too.  I've made up a circuit board to run separate circuits for the cabin lighting, navigation lighting and SIMS screen.  I'll post about that board in a future post.  Also, A fellow club member made a couple of small circuit boards up for me so that the blue and orange lights flash separately.

So, here's a picture showing all the lights on, which caught the blue and orange ones on.  I'm both relieved and impressed that he wiring inside the mast still works!
