Hi,  10mm is a bit big (handles stick out) but I take your point. Thanks.
Regards, Edward

Ashley, thanks for your thinking!  Your first suggestion sound the best but, as you say, size is the thing.  It will be a bit like watch-making but fortunately I have a fairly comprehensive workshop (but without the real ability!).  Anyway, Iwill pluck up my courage and give it a go.

Ashley, thanks for the reply.  It is for a 1/48 model of HMS Thetis, an early T class submarine (1939) which had a steering position in the conning tower.  Lokking at photographs I am guessing at 10mm dia.
The photos I have seen are not very clear and I can not see the material.  I guess that it is probably steel, due to the wet nature of such a boat.

I have been trying to get a ship's wheel that is 10mm diameter.  My first thought is to use a readu made one but this size seems a bit too small.  My next thought was to buy a plastic kit that had a ship's wheel of the correct size but haven't a clue what to buy.  My last thought is to make one, but at this scale I am unsure how to go about this.
Can anybody help me?

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
