Dear Wargames Illustrated 374 purchasers! We hope you are enjoying the free Cruel Sea’s ship frame we have included with the latest issue of Wargames Illustrated magazine (WI374, December 2018). If yours came/comes with a German S-Boat you may be missing an antenna which should be situated towards the rear of the ship – the pesky little sticky-uppy things have a habit of pinging off when thrown about by the postman or store shelf stacker.
If your S-Boat is ohne antennethen we have an easy fix for you using a cocktail stick.
Here’s how you do it…
(Above) Here’s what you will need. The red circle is highlighting the area where the pesky antenna has pinged from.
Take your average cocktail stick and cut out the centre (non-tapered) section.
Take a hobby drill of any description, as long as it’s got the right sized bit, and drill out a hole to accommodate your stick. File the hole (clean) if required.
Fit the cocktail stick in place. Glue it if you like or if you are as clever as us you will have a nice tight fit.
Hey presto and job done.
