SOAKING PITS - Part 2
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.
