Cage Aerials help needed

Recommended Posts


I have my Trumpeter Dreadnought nearly finished but am still struggling with the cage aerials.

I tried the WEM set but first failed using their star shaped spreaders and now have started rigging up the round ones included - I am not too happy with my efforts.

Main problem is that all the kinds of spreaders only have these little groves for the thread and I just cannot get that rigged up straight and proper.

I have now seen the Dreadnought set by North Star models on the net and it seems to have correct spreaders (star shape, eight 'arms') but the online image is not clear enough to show wether they have only a groove at each arm's end or a 'real' hole for the thread to drive through - which I consider would make things much easier.

Does anyone know? An enquiry about this has not yet been answered by NS models.

Good news from White Ensign,they have released a set of etched 8 point star spreaders in 1/350th.There are 50 spreaders and they have holes at each point to allow your chosen aerial material to be threaded through.Item number is 35178 priced at £3.25 per set.
