Hi my friends, detail and correction work continues, the bases for the generator room are cut
And moved closer to the edge of the main platform to allow a little more space for the front
Catwalk of the generator and a reinforcement for that area

Here the photo of the reinforcement

Using .90 styrene sheet the pieces are constructed

Now the bases that holds the generator room are cut and moved, this are glued 7mm
From the edge of the main platform

the elevators are next. The elevators Rails on Dora have hinges that allows the rails to separate so that the elevator platform can be Detached and Swing and move so it can be aligned with the ammo cars if the gun is on a curve.

Here the elevator rail are assembled and ready to be cut

First the details are removed

The cut is made at 126mm from the bottom of the rail

The four rails are cut, now the hinges are constructed

Here the original hinges can be seen, also what I think is a lifting eye above the

Here are the measurements for the hinges parts
First the bases are constructed from 1.5mm styrene sheet

You need to cut 16 10mm x 6mm rectangles of 1.5 styrene sheet

Next I marked a line at 6mm on each piece

A diagonal cut is made from the corner at the 4mm half
