Scope body

One of the most difficult parts of this model was the scope main body, I first made a rectangle centre section from various thickness plastic card. I then used some 28mm tube from plastruct and cut two pieces to length, i drilled a hole at each end and then started the long boring task of covering it with electrical flex fixing one end into the hole and every so often a spot of superglue was added to the tube and then more winding until the end was fixed to the hole at the other end. Below these were fitted two plain pieces of tube, below these were two pieces of tube this time coverered in thinner flex in the same way as before, below these were two more coverered in the same flex and finally another plain tube. The shape moving outwards at the bottom was done by simply adding pieces of square tube behind each main tube as required.
