Roof trusses,....    I have found these to be sort of a necessary evil - I have to build them for certain structures, but really don't enjoy it.  Too much repetition I guess.  A testament to this is the A-Furnace cast house which still only stands with one complete truss, although the Bethlehem Steel architects seemed extra sadistic in the design of those small trusses.   I need to build seven complete trusses for the soaking pit building - one down - about an hour construction time, or so.  I might be able to speed construction a bit.  The main external members are all Plastruct 3/32 angle and the inner cords, Evergreen .060 angle.   The plates are from .020 styrene.

Casting is one of the core component in any iron based industry. Steel castings provide way to get castings solution for big industries where strength of material matters.
