Left BulkheadHaving already made my cutaway ‘holes’ the left side bulkhead was already subdivided into three sections – by simply offering up the pre-cut bulkhead sheet and tracing the edges I could cut the pieces to shape and simply add the detail. I utilised the Skif gas bottles and etched holder and added detail to the operating handles and pipe-work. Whenever possible I will use styrene rod to replicate cabling and pipe-work, by warming the rod slightly by rubbing between finger and thumb, very tight bends are achievable without breakage in all rod sizes from 0.1 – 1mm. The control lever return spring assembly was fashioned from more styrene section with springs added from thin copper wire wound around a 1mm piece of rod to replicate the coils.
