B-FURNACE Part 13
Back to the B-Furnace stoves. I built the upper stove walkways and the sign that is based on the USS Central Furnaces in Cleveland. The sign was pretty tedious to make - I used 1/2" stick on letters as templates, cutting the actual letters out of .020 styrene. The sign supports are .040x.040 strip. The upper platform is built from .030 styrene, with the usual .030x.030 posts and .020x.040 railings. One change with this furnace is that the prototype had the bottom half of the railings closed in. I used .020x.250 strip for this purpose.
