Finally some time off to do a little bit to the MA. A few pics of some of the fittings that have been added to the decks. I also tried my hand at building wipers for the front of the bridge as well. Next to start working on some of the leds for lights and the twin working radar.

Hey Dennis,

very nice detailing ^^^What did you make the wipers from? photo-etched ones or brass rod?

Hey Arno, great to hear from you. I used .030 Styr. for the wipers. Because they are so small though I think I might try to photo etch them next time. It would of been a lot easier and would have made for a cleaner look.

Started to get a little bit more done on the ma. Was able to get the forward mast painted and built the forward mast light and upper mast lights done as well as the rear mast and some of the deck lights. Also finished the sliding doors for the bridge along with the awnings on both sides as well the red and green running lights. Here are some pics of the progress.

Hey Dennis,

really excellent paint job ^^^ :) ^^^Do the leads run inside of the profile of the light supports or did you glue them outside? The masts of my Velarde are made out of resin and quite high so I was not able to drill holes inside and had to fix the leads outside. I painted them later and from a distance you can hardly recognize them.

Regards
Arno

Hey Arno, yes they are all run on the inside of all the mast. I built the mast from scratch so as to have it hollow to allow for that. Even so it was still very time consuming to feed the tiny wires through. I had to feed a slightly larger single wire first then attach the leds wire to that and pull it through. All in all it took me about three days to pull the wires for the two mast.

If I would build my Velarde once more I would do the masts from scratch as well. I tried to hide the leads behind the ladders which I glued onto the masts. It took me hours to put the leads behind the photo-etched ladders as well.
