                        Type 281 radar transceiver fitted.
           This should be etched brass but it refused to fit together, some of the brass has been disappointing to say the least. This is a scratch-built effort, not as highly detailed as the brass one but it shows the main details and the proportions are about right.
           The little "fir tree" on top is the "identify friend or foe" antenna.
