Hello All,

Thank you for the nice comments regarding my cabinet, much appreciated.

After couple of weeks break, due to holiday, the work carried on.
The bottom side of the plastic cover sheet was fully covered with double sided tape and the fabric fixed onto it.
Then strips of tape applied around the top edge of the sheet to fix the overhanging fabric.
Finally the completed sheet stuck (by magnets & washers) to the bottom of the cabinet to cover the aluminium frame and the LED wiring.
Now it looks nice also from the bottom.BigGrin

In the meantime also the new power supply arrived, done a quick test,and happily noted that it's now strong enough to cope the current what is taken by the 12V DC motor to move the cabinet up/down for cleaning.

Now I need to go back to work on the electronics, write the code and connect to the mechanics.
1-2 weeks and hopefully it will be all finished.

Then I can have a party... Cool BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

Dear All,

In the last two weeks I done some serious work on the electronics:

- New PCBA made as the old one didn't have strong enough relays to bear the current flow
- Microcontroller (Arduino Nano) re-programmed
- Electronics wired up to the mechanics
- Upper & lower limiter switches positioned and wired up

The tricky part was to find a way how can I connect electrically the rotating end of the wire rope (taking the voltage down to the LED's) to the stationary electronics.
I ended up with a DIY method... it's a bit dodgy but works like a charm... I wrapped the wire rope with self-adhesive copper strip, stuck the strip to the rolling drum, lead it through underneath the winded rope and wrapped around the unoccupied end of the drum. Then I bent a pair of BBQ skewers and fixed to the frame that they always have a small tension to make the contact on the copper strip. The other end of the skewers connected to the electronics...
I told you... it's cheap, dodgy, but works... Cool BigGrin LOL LOL LOL

The power supply plugged into a wi-fi smart plug, so it only consumes power when I want it to operate.

And FINALLY.... her majesty, the ship, has been placed inside...

F I N I S H E D !!!!!!!!!!

Cool Cool Love Love Drool Drool

The LED, the cabinet moving up\down all remote controlled from phone via Wi-Fi (Smart Plug) and Bluetooth (Microcontroller).

Looks amazing... well.. at least for me... BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

In few weeks time I'll start working on a little diorama with cannons and the figurines, but now I need to take some break... BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

Thank you guys for all the fantastic comments.
It means a lot to me.

I made my mind up and came to the conclusion that the cabinet can’t be complete without the cross section.
Hence today I ordered the HMS Victory Cross-Section full kit. Cool Cool Cool

I will start a new diary in the cross-section section of the forum.
I hope you will follow that diary too. Cool

I will also do the diorama with the figures but some still need to be painted.
The progress of that will be posted into this diary.
Happy building!
Laszlo
