I ran out of brass tubing so used some aluminum for the straightaway. I messed up with the painting again. I should have waited to prime and paint the pipe couplers - I will have to prime and paint a scond time.
I started workin on the pipes leading to the fire monitors on top of the wheelhouse. I had quite a few problems bending the alloy rod - it was brittle and kept breaking. I ordered aluminum tubing from K&S but this also was brittle and broke. Finally I used some brass tubing which came with the tubing bender - this worked.
