    I would like to make a 1/35 scale model of a British air raid siren, any idea where I can get the dimensions to build a model.

    Tripod or municipal?

    Tripod is small and municipal is 3 phase and usually attached to a building.

    There were some big ones around in WWII. I've heard of a German model powered by a DB601 V12.

    Can't find a reference for that one at the moment but found this cold war era V8 driven model. I imagine Britain had similar ones.

    I remember these sirens being used in the 50s to call out the Fire Brigade.

    Yes timuk, they are the ones, they were left over from the war, and I need to find the dimensions.

    There is a little on size in the link under 'Comparative sizes of sirens'. It's not much but it may help if you're really stuck.

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to reply to my query, I have put in a request to the Ulster Aviation society, hopefully, they can help.
    Thanks
