SdKfz 251 9 Meter Telescoping Mast

Postby Mike Stannard (toyrific) » Mon Nov 12, 2007 3:41 am

Here are pictures of the prototype 9 meter telescoping mast for the 251, there appears to be several version of telescoping masts used on various vehicles, this one was designed from a lined drawing as the only photos I could find did not give enough detail. The mast is mostly shown in the retracted position, I only have one picture, not very clear of it extended when it was on display at OSF. when fully extended if is over 6 feet tall. Still some work to do on it, more detail needs to be added to the crank box and main base upright tube.

This is basically a 100% hand made from telescoping brass tubing which is .028" thick. All hand cut and soldered. The mast, scaled one that is, is held erect by a single length of copper wire that is treaded through holes in each tube starting at the bottom and working to the top. Takes about 5 minutes to do it. How it is done is a secret at the moment. took me a few hours to figure it out.

As these will be all hand made, they will be expensive, there is no way to mass produce it that I can think of in small numbers. If you have an interest let me know.

Here are the pictures

Hi Jim

Same thing goes for this item as with the Ammo Trailer Box on quoting a price.
