It does have alot to do with metal working, and pay attention they use
"tape machines" to make some of the parts.

around a nuke or two...

That plane hauled around a lot of stuff...  I remember working on it
when it was in FLL in  the early 80's .    Somewhere in a box stored
away I have some pictures of it including the interior.  These aircraft
were usually stripped of all the old equipment to increase the payload.
  Two ac alternators  off each outboard engine, all the extra wiring,
two big 400 cps inverters, all the old radio equipment,  ARN-7 adf,
51X3  com receivers, ARN14  ,   RDR-1 radar, and a  bunch of other stuff
that I can't  remember any more.  In total you could remove over 10000
lbs of old equipment and replace it with less than 200 lbs. of late
solid state equipment and increase your cargo capacity by that much.
