Hi sharunas,

and thanks for your overwhelming hymn of praise.

I am glad that you are looking in on me again and that you like my work.
Stay tuned.

Hello friends,
the devil is just as always in the details.

Just when I wanted to start with the tiny supports for the gutters,



I have noticed that I have to correct the dimensions once more, because I noticed a thing only now, which I have so far overlooked.

The gutters have indeed the same diameter (10'') over the side length of the MLPs, but their height in the first and last bay strangely diminishes outwards as you can see in this image, if one knows it, otherwise it is not striking.
But on the linked HiRes image one can see it more clearly, if one follows the alignments of the gutter.


Source: NASA

In the Bay 18 I then took measurements, and as you can see, the height difference is about 0.5 mm, which is not much, but at least.


Source: Library of Congress

And then still to the gutter supports, which are fixed on the girders, as can be seen in this picture.

Merely the outer supports at the sides end differ in shape as one can see in these images, at which the lower flange is missing.

Therewith everything should be clear now for scratching the gutters.

Hadn't dropped in for awhile. As usual as I go through the photos, I just feel my jaw dropping to the desk. I'm a bit of a detail junkie, but definitely still an underclassman in comparison to your doctoral level.

Thanks whulsey for your nice compliment,

Hello everybody,

here quickly an image of an other test of a support on a gutter fragment.



These supports must then still be glued onto short Evergreen Strips 0.25 mm x 0.75 mm and then glued on the 17 girders below the gutter, what again will only work with CA.
Probably I will already previously glue the supports below the gutter, then paint everything together and finally glue the complete gutter.
Thus far for the moment to the theory!

It was the "glossy look" of the SRB. I thought you had temporarily placed a plastic shuttle stack on your MLP!
