The resistors/capacitors were based on the 5v solar panels & when I set it to 4.5v the blinking LED's started to play up & then stop working. I've now put it to 5v which now reduces it to below 1 amp & 1 is now blinking again & 1 is permanently on.

This ain't over by a long shot but I'll get there in the end.

As for another build, yes my next project is a Bedford RL, Bruin, Radio Relay with the C70 Radios hooked up to a wrecka (go back to page 13), I'm replicating that. I've got both kits (Curtesy of H at KFS) & have already started, my stumbling block here is info on the inside of the pod with the C70 radios & what was inside the pod? They weren't as busy as the Ptarmigan RR's but I can't find anything on the C70's & can't remember what the blowers looked like as the sets were valve driven & the blowers kept em cool but I am talking over 30 years ago, all I can remember is when you started to tune em....6AK5W1 followed by 6AK5W2 & they were a bitch when they went out of track lol......Hold on.....both LED's are blinking now, the circuit board has a mind of it's own at the mo lol
