Re: So, how do you get up the tower???
Beam me up Scotty
It looks to me like you get there via a catwalk from (below?) the SPS-30 platform. At least that's how I interpret
this picture of USS LITTLE ROCK.
As I'm building Niko's 1/700 USS GALVESTON, I'm now working o the aft superstructure where she had her radar gear for the Talos missile system. (NOTE: THAT is an Incredible piece of hardware, who ever had that on their ships..... I wish I had spoken/text you for information!!)
But if you look at this image, next to the SPS-30 radar platform and set, to the right there is a tower for the AN/SPW-2 radar guidance ( I assume that it 'guides' the Talos -> target ). And below that moving further right, is the AN/SPG-49 radar "tracker"..... ( I hope I'm getting that right ).
So my question is ........ HOW do you get up that tower????!!! (between the SPS-30 and SPG-49)
If you are doing PMS on that radar set (SPW-2), do you go up INSIDE?? ( I don't see a hatch on that little circular crawlway) and there is NO Ladder there???
Thanks for your time.
