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.

I have three questions, one relating to the 39 pads and two relating to the VAB.

1. In the attached pic (a crop of 39A near the LH2 tank from Google Maps), there are two structures/areas that I pointed out. What were they? Were they used for Shuttle or Apollo, or both?

39B also has nearly identical structures in the same area.

2. In the VAB Low Bay, are there still Saturn V stage checkout bays? I believe I read somewhere that there are still a few leftover.

3. What will the Low Bay be used for in the future?

Thanks for the help!

Are there anymore photos of the platform on the north side of the FSS 195 level? It's seen in this photo and it connects to the ET access platforms and access arm for the intertank.
