The spares box was raided and I used various diameters of plastic rod and square tube, brass rod and tube and a bit of 'riveted' etched brass for an inspection cover.

Good evening from 'The Dockyard'.

The next stage of fitting out the aft torpedo compartment is scratch building the high pressure air compressor [HPAC] and it's electric motor. The first step was to make the structure that forms the bed which supports these pieces of machinery.

See attached photo of the completed machine bed. All materials used in my scratch building range from various thicknesses of styrene sheet and various diameters of styrene rod, brass rod and tube.
