Default Aerial Base for my F8

Although there's another thread on the base for a carrier, could someone advise what one for my truck should look like? Any plans with dimensions would be most appreciated!

Regards,
Jiim

Default Aerial Base

Terry,
Attached are a few pictures of the aerial base that I could fins. It looks relatively easy to fabricate.

Regards,
Jim

I have a drawing of that C8/F8 base mount . I'm sure I have posted some of this stuff previously. The wireless fitments also include the operators board and other bits and pieces. And the chorehorse sitting on the fuel tank . The whole thing was based on the British PU wireless truck , as seen in Rons pics.

Mike,
It would be super if you could post that drawing of the base mount.

Thanks!
