Hi all, while building my model's hull I keep also working on a number of sub assemblies( mainly weaponry): Right now I'm researching the torpedo roll off racks, does anybody have clear pictures/drawings fo the release gear torque tube and related pushrods? Apparently Mr Al Ross produced a set of drawings of the complete racks.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Greetings

Dear Daniele:

All these models can be done in your 1/16 scale. Only ask.

Torpedo racks too.

Best regards

Luis

I know Louis, thank you for the offer, but I'll build my racks ouf of brass sheet for greater strenght, 3DP parts are too fragile in my opinion,considering the size of the racks in 1/16th.
Regards.

Best work is what you are proud to do with your own hands...

Send me a message and I will reply you with these drawings.

Only tell me what type of roll racks you consider the best for your project (there are many different designs in my shop).

Best regards

Luis
