Hello, finally got the case together and wondering if the orientation of the transformers is correct how I have them set up?

That will work. Your two output tubes will be in the front?

I believe the output tubes are towards the back. The bottom of the picture is the front of the amp

Rotate that plate 180 degrees clockwise and it looks right.

Rectifier tube is shown top right in your photo.

Or, it could be me?

I believe you are correct. For the output tubes to be mounted closest to the output transformer, the plate should be rotated 180.

You could also locate the power transformer in back on the same axis as the OTs in the orientation shown.
