Hello everybody,

does anyone know, what these wrapped equipments on the inner walls of the SRB holes were used for?

Here one is uncovered.

Might this have been an interface for the booster ignition?

Does anyone know the height of the Camera Site mounds? Based on estimations, I'd say they're around 15-20 ft high, but I'd really want to know for sure.

Are there any photos and diagrams of the water inlet pipes next to the MLP pedestals? I'm making these for the Edu-Craft kit since the kit doesn't include them.

Also are there photos and diagrams of the Elevator Machine Room, ECS and 9099 tower, and Utilities structure on the LC-39 pad surface? The said model I'm building has room on it's base to add these.
