Default My attempt at a scale radio antenna



Sorry if it is hard to see but it's small .012" SS wire, welded down to a ball on the end. And small price of cannula end welded shut and hole drilled in it.

Updated my antenna design a bit and relocated to scale position. I extended the cannula up and asked a bit of plastic from axial parts three for antenna base. Added light pods to hide old antenna hole.

Nice the lights look good there too aliitle big or maybe its just the shape but it looks like a good spot for them and they dont look out of place at all maybe a small round light might look better but thats just a maybe
The antenna looks great

Looks awesome. I'm trying to figure out how to make some that look like the cb firesticks. Wanna do dual antennae on the bed.

Antenna looks good.
How flexible is it?
Will it bend or snap back into shape?
