Adam,

fantastic job on your funnels, and a beautiful color choice.

The pipe you're asking about is an awning rafter. See below:

http://titanic-model.com/finds/decks/awningrafter.shtml

The problem is that for every model company out there, the guy who designed that part for the mold didn't understand what it was and got it wrong. All the kits have it as a pipe that curves up or down at one or both ends, whereas in reality it was mounted to the top of the Gibbs Extractor vent at one end and atop the edge of the stokehold vent at its other end (the latter vent must have had some sort of provision to allow the pipe to slide back and forth since it spanned the forward expansion joint.) It also had a support just aft of the expansion joint.

Peter Davies-Garner has this as being square in cross-section rather than cylindrical like a pipe; I think the jury is out on that one. I don't know what information he based this design on. Perhaps someone else knows.

This is an example of a detail that's easily corrected with impressive results for only a few cents of material. Styrene rod is available in diameters down to .010, which allows the modeler to replace the horribly oversized kit part with a replacement of the correct scale diameter.
