Furnace Room Interior

This is what I’ve mostly referred to in past posts as the furnace room. Its below decks and is virtually obscured from view when the removable panel is in place, but I long ago set my heart on creating a little diorama¬†down here in the guts of the ship…

So I’ve added a few walls, which also creates a space to the left where coal-like fuel will be piled up for shovelling in to the furnace, you can sort of make out the loading hatch on the deck above…

As I won’t have the best access when its in place for doing any detailed painting this, along with the other parts I have planned for down here, will be constructed as separate units which can be fixed in once painted…

If you were wondering where the door led to, well someone’s got to operate these missile tubes…

Which rather conveniently poke out of this slot in the side of the hull…

Well I now need to make a mirror of this for the other side… the ‘other side’ is always a bit boring to do, although at least it wont be quite so trial and error getting it to fit.
