1 (loop brackets).
to the anchor chain braking valves sat two raised hoop-like
brackets. A clear view of the Olympic's can be seen on page
39 of Leo Marriott's "Titanic". Use plastic strips bent into
a reversed U and glue them into position.
Item 2 (safety
ahead of these hoops sat a smaller chain that ran through
a link of the anchor chain. To make these take a common speaker
wire and strip it down to the copper wires. Twist the wires
as tightly as possible to create a braided look. Make two
of these about 15mm in length each. Drill a small hole on
either side of the anchor chain's deck guide and place the
braided wire's ends through the holes. Pull from the under
side with pliers so they sit snugly up against the chain.

guides, hoops and safety chains flat black.

the bow anchor crane. From the crane working back there
was, a phone box (to the bridge), next the mast stay, then
the anchor chain hatch.
the DOCKING BRIDGE section
for instructions on making the phone box.
Item 5 (anchor
this out of a single panel of 5-bar A/M plastic railings
and paint it flat white.
Item 6 (plate
the anchor chain hatch sat another plate. Make this plate
from planked sheet plastic and glue it to the deck just
forward of the windlasses. Paint this the same color you
chose for the deck planking.
