What a perfect looking Venom. How did you do the satcom antenna on top of the mast?

Congratulations.

I'm sure there is a much better way, although

  • I drilled laterally through thin walled brass tubing.
  • Cut 2 pieces of tubing to width.
  • Incerted styrene rod through drilled hole on one piece
  • cut the other in half, through the previous drilled hole, providing a pin on either side for positioning.

 

It was a pain in the you know what!! I believe It resulted in a very convincing antenna. 

 

Thanks for the comment and question!!

Fantastic work! It makes a nice change to see the rotors folded like that.

Love it!  A automatic blade fold mechanism would have surely been a great addition, but it would have cost the Marines a few more shekels so they passed on it.
