Cable Mania…it’s fun…its exciting…and everyone should be doing it!

So I’m in cable mania but found a solution that won’t take 4 weeks to do since we don’t have 4 weeks.

At this scale these parts are pretty small and to make them exactly the same as what they had at this 1/3rd scale would be the pathway to madness. The simple solution was to use Evergreen poly styrene off the shelf and music wire. At this rate it takes about and hour and a half to do one times 16 of them.

This means the model is finished at long last this weekend. However I need the remaining time to go back over a groom the shit out of it. There’s so much to tidy up but if you needed it tomorrow we have it and hanging from the ceiling it would look fine and we know the lights work. They have been burning for days. No heat, no blinks and no problems.

Two down and 14 more of these assemblies to make and this model is done. We are on day 49. Keep in mine I only work 4 hours a day on it. Maybe 5 7 days a week. See the Messerschmidt? I’d rather being flying!

    That’s a great solution, and it’s looking fantastic, Steve.
