4 pieces are glued to each rail


The styrene pieces are glued flush to the flat side of the rail


This are the measurements for the hinges pieces made again from
1.5 styrene sheet


You need 24 3mm x 7mm pieces for the 4 rails


One of the ends of each piece is sanded round


2 pieces are glued to each side of the short rail


Next this are sanded at an angle to look like this




one piece is glued to each side of the long rail to form the hinge
pivot area


The hinge pin is made with a .80 brass rod


Now the lift eye is made with the 1.5mm styrene sheet


4 pieces measuring 10mm x 12mm are cut


Now I marked 5mm on the 12mm side and 2mm on the 10mm side
And draw a line from point to point


After the cut it looks like this


The edge is then sanded round


A 9/64 hole is drilled on each and the piece is glued in place




Here you can see the movement of the hinge to the outside to allow the
Elevator to disengage and be aligned with the ammo car


More drawings with all the measurements
