A Look At – Making Catenary Hanger Style Masts
Catenary OLHE Hangers
In this article we take a look at making some hanger style type catenary masts to go with the Scale Model Scenery OHLE gantries. For this you’ll need the Dapol OO-Cat1 catenary single mast pack (this pack contains 10 OO scale OHLE masts), Loctite 60 Second Super Glue or similar, pair of cutters, file or sanding stick. You also need some form of a jig tool & in our case the one supplied with the LX050-OO Lattice Head Span kit.
Lets get started….
So as regular readers know by know here’s the tools & glue that you need:
- Cutting mat
- Jig tool from the Scale Model Scenery LX050-OO head span kit
- Roket card glue by Deluxe Materials or similar
- Pair of cutters (we’re using a pair of Xuron Track Cutters)
- Sanding stick or file
- Old cloth for wiping away excess glue
Cut the mast just below the lower registration arm as marked with the orange arrow on the right.
