Thanks for that adt70hk, I tried plastic bristles but did not like the finish, but yours look ok, as do the handles etc, have to treat the wife to a new brush but will pay more attention to the quality of the bristles this time! :lol: :lol:

No problem and thanks for the feedback on my efforts. Also, please let me know how getting your wife a brush for your anniversary goes down!! ;)

try Wildfire Thermally Bonded Bead Weaving Thread .006in ( 0.15mm) black. very good for flexible whip antenna. nearly indestructible bonded fibers that don't unravel. too flexible; just give it a coat of paint.
it's on ebay if you can't find it locally.

Hi Cap,
2 inches (or 5cm in "modern")

Source for this is http://www.pyetelecomhistory.org/prodhi ... c-ws19.pdf

Main wireless type in tanks was (I believe) the WS19 set... the above article says: A separate aerial tuning unit was used to
match the transmitter output to the 12-foot aerial rod mounted on the turret or roof of the vehicle
.

Hope this helps
Cheers
Colin
