Andy G that's a good Java Applet for the cage mast.


Aye - but shh! :heh: It was stolen from a maths' site. ;-)

...That said, it gets the point across.

I really like the scans Jim put in - it's construction details like that which get my fingers wandering off to the bits-and-pieces box. Ummm...Not that my Dreadnought is going to be sprouting a cage mast any time soon!

just makes me keep hacking away at my Maryland...wonder where he got the 5" guns...O ya! I got the book Scale Model Warships...thanks Jim


Dear Colleagues,
Thank you for your comments; I am glad that you liked the masts... The 5-in AA guns are from the "weapons and equipment" sprues that are now included into some 1:700 Revell ship kits... Kind regards - Alex

Hi guys

My web-chum Wolfgang Kring from Germany is building a number of US Pre-dreadnoughts --mainly in 1/350.

He has allowed me to post a couple of pictures of his work.

I include below the text pertaining to the images.
Note the presence of the platforms and the internal ladders....!!

>>This ISW cagemast is modified.
I used the original ISW mast and added one
more segment upside down. The pictures I have of " USS Nebraska" during
1918 show very thin and long cagemasts; they seem to be nearly double as
tall as her stacks. ...and the standard ISW PE-cagemasts were to short, so I
think it was the best idea to extend them like I did (...by the way: this was my only idea...!!

And now it looks like more than a hourglass shape than before.

What a simple, yet brilliant idea! My only comment would be the cage masts look a little too tall.

BTW - I'm moving this thread to the Tips forum, I think it's worth keeping around.

At some point in time i want to do an early USS.Arizona and thinking about the cage mast, couldn't seem to find what i wanted, i mess a round in 3d modelling now an then i would have thought that would have been the way to go, unless the thickness of the struts [ can we call them that?] is too thin to produce, I know Shapeway's can only do a certain thickness otherwise the printer can't print it.

3D-printed cagemasts have become available since this thread was made - Blue Ridge makes several versions: https://freetimehobbies.com/search/sear ... =cage+mast

Unfortunately, the 1/350 cage masts are OOP and superbly fragile.

You could build in the Only True Scale off course -:) And while not OOP I found my 3D printed '700 cage masts rather fragile as well and i am considering going 'back' to old method for a stalled 1/700 project. I have seen some very nice cage masts in 1/350 using the 'traditional' method, why don't you try doing one?
