SOAKING PITS - Part 3
Building roof trusses from angle and sheet styrene webbing is boring and time consuming, but I try to press on. Equally boring was fabricating the support beam for the crane. This is probably something I could have kitbashed, however, once again it boils down to a cost thing. I would probably have to use two $20 bridge kits to do the same thing. To me that seems like a waste. The beam is built from .060 styrene sheet and then .030 x .125 edging. I used .030x.060 strips to form the segments. A .030x.060 makes for a good runner for the crane.
