    I'll show you what went sour David, i replaced the mast, checked if the leds where in working order and made the wiring inside the upperstructure tidy, everything ready for again a victory of Manfredizing.

    It took me a few days before i got the gutts for breaking it open, luckely i used epoxy-glue and not styrene-glue.

    Managed to get a new led inside, only drawback was, those wires where getting shorter, twice the connections on the led broke loose, and the story had to begin from the start, anybody says modelbuilding is a relaxt hobby has got a wire loose inside his own brains.

    Once you stated this was a boat of terror, yes she is, in this chase, for me!!!!, for now i have to wait for the spring, she will be covered in foil against the dust, also made a vid which i will download, be patient.

    PS, shortly after this picture the green nav-light on the upperstructure went dead, arghhhh, such pleasures of the hobby!!!!!

      Oh, man! You had to re-string that armature wire all the way down the mast, and into the hull. Ouch! Maybe you should increase the value of your current limiting resister(s)? Damned LED's are supposed to be good for 60 some years if run at the right current (how the egg-heads came up with number, I can't imagine).

      Looking good, pal.

        Restringing those wires into the mast?, hell no!!!, i got lazy, had a tolerance of about 10 mm in the cables, so one light has a nice loop and the other less loop, i usually use 3K resistors, they work fine, i guess by using the soldering-iron so close at a led's base it received too much heat, thus shortening the lifespan of my led.

        And the final vid i made about the progress this year.

            Manfred,
            As always I love the work you do!
            I ran into problems with my smd red green LEDs, the green one was significantly brighter, I would have to play with resistors until I could make them even looking, do those larger LEDs have that issue? Yours looked really good.
            Peace,
            Tom
            If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

              As Always took some more effort this time David, the mast was not intended for having lights, this will be a brainer for the future, allways prepare your stuff for, what if.

              Tom,

              Those larger 3 mm leds don't have that issue, playing with resistors to get the lights down even is the best solution, green will be more bright as red by nature, white was not a problem, i noticed that my white at the stern and bow are different in colour, those are cool white and the one's at the mast warm white, changing that will be a job for the future, still have a Japanese sub on the waitinglist.

              Manfred.

                  Nice vid Bart,

                  I noticed that the fire radar also turns, nice item to make it turn also, going to fetch some geared e-motor for that.
