1/260 ST:TMP Drydock Part 3
Tension Rod/Anchor Assembly - 5
This end of the rod is not cemented to the sleeve so that when I lift the model into it's upright position the weight of everything will shift and cause these rods to bend or warp. This way they will slide a little bit inside the sleeve. If they are too long when I upright the model I can trim the rods that are warped and then slide them back into the sleeve.
