I'm certain that we had a 'bomb factory' thread where we had some pictures of the 'mock-up' flat including bath. Meantime here's the BBC version:

7/7 bomb factory rebuilt by NYPD


Replica of Alexandra Grove flat

The flat has been replicated exactly as it was found by police
Police in the US have made an exact replica of a West Yorkshire flat where the men behind the 7/7 attacks concocted their deadly explosives.

The replica of the flat in Burley, Leeds, will be used to train police in New York about the use of home-made explosives for terror attacks.

The discarded ingredients at the bomb factory have been reconstructed exactly as they were found by police.

The bombers used household products to make explosives which killed 52 people.

You can easily find out how to make explosives. . . the ingredients they use are commonly available
Alastair Hay, Leeds University

Following instructions available on the internet, the four men from West Yorkshire mixed chemicals found in nail varnish remover and hair dye in a bath filled with ice, wearing rubber gloves and shower caps for protection.

The finished product was a volatile explosive stored in jars, which was used to kill 52 people and injure hundreds more in the 2005 attacks.

Professor Alastair Hay, a toxicologist from Leeds University, said: "I think we just have to be relieved that the majority of people don't want to make explosives.

"You can easily find out how to make explosives, if they want to make these things, the agents they want to use are common and readily available."

The flat in Alexandra Grove now has a new tenant, John Langland, who previously lived nearby.

He said he had noticed a strange smell from the flat in the weeks leading up to the attacks.

He said: "I think it was that strong around this area that it affected and killed all the plants and they have just started growing back now - that is how long it has taken."

BBC security correspondent Gordon Corera said the US is concerned about a similar 7/7 attack.

He said: "It is clear that the 7 July model of an attack is what the United States is worried about.

"It is particularly worrying because it was a small group of people, with relatively little training, able to carry out their attack using household items, building it in a flat.

"That does not necessarily mean it is imminent in the US, but it is the kind of attack that they are worried about."

From this post:
<snip>Peter Clarke, former head of the Met Police's anti-terrorism branch who led the inquiry until his resignation last year, said "every possible line" in the 7/7 investigation was exhausted - even though detectives found up to 10 sets of unidentified fingerprints in bomb factories used by Sidique Khan.<snip>

"No one understood better than Stalin that the true object of propaganda is neither to convince nor even to persuade, but to produce a uniform pattern of public utterance in which the first trace of unorthodox thought immediately reveals itself as a jarring dissonance." Leonard Schapiro
