I have to say Thank you very much for all your enthusiastic comments, my friends!

Andreas sorry, no Stammheim next weekend :(

Cheers,

Bristol F.2B Fighter, Eduard 1/48, Update 13.7.2018 RAF wires
« Reply #33 on: July 14, 2018, 08:47:06 AM »
Thanks Manni, if you love little details, you will love this update too!


RAF-Wires


Today I have some macros for my friends of micro mechanics!
This update handles the rigging with RAF wires. I will use the flat EZ-line, but I need some mounting. For the Brisfit I developed a new system, which combines ideas from my D.H.2 Stripdown and my Sopwith Pup.

At first I need 16 plates on the struts. A rest of a PE set drilled with 0,5mm, cutted, put on a drill shaft and soldered. For the risk of loosing some I added two more.



This pack was milled in form:



The size matches the parts of the CSM Dolphin, the wide finger is for the double wire.



The parts are separated. During the desolder I got some 4-parts pack, so I removed some fingers.
After that I added 0,5mm brass pipes. On the picture 52 drill holes are missing, done already. Unless I am very much mistaken the symmetric parts should match. Only the "flying wires" are double, the landing wires are singles.



To the strut the pipe is very short, just to keep a small distance.



The connectors made of 0,5mm brass pipe are in preparation, slotted and crimped. Some holes are missing. For the struts I need 52, 36 are done.



On the end I made a thickening of 0,7mm pipe, tinned and mounted with 0,2mm nickel silver. Only one prototype is done.



With a plugged strut it looks great. This mounts can be prepared and mounted with the struts. For the rigging I just need to plug in EZ-line and secure it with CA.



In 1:48 one can hardly find a more original solution?
With that preparation I hope to be able to finish the rigging task fast.
Now I just need to create some more pipes ...

Cheers,
Frank

Frank,
    You are again exercising your pure magic on details, just incredible work and even more so in 1;48 Scale! I truly envy your soldering skills, I wouldn't be able to match this in 1:32 Scale. Great work and this promises to be a really outstanding model! 8) 8) 8)
Cheers,
Lance

Guy, I guess a iPad?

Try to load this URL in your address line, this is the address of the last picture:
http://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1653MMJ3smRNVZZYq8kleCEwQAt4a7kIT

Some browsers seems not to load such pictures from Google into the page for some strange reason. If the picture loads then it is not a problem with access rights.
For me Firefox and Chrome are working, on the company machine also in MS Explorer.

Hope it helps,
Frank

Hi Frank
Can you please let me know what you used to put the slots in the tubing before crimping ?

Thank you very much for your comments Juan, Lance, RAGIII, Guy, Giuseppe, Andrew and GazzaS!

Frank, you are no mere mortal.
I was born on this planet, but sometimes I wish to come from somewhere else to have more usable hands! Two are often really not enough ;)


Can you please let me know what you used to put the slots in the tubing before crimping ?
Andrew, I use a etched saw from http://www.radubstore.com
I don't know, which one I bought. The blad is 0,08mm thin:
