Looking good, Richard.  A solid lower wing mounting is a good thing!

It's an absolute bonus in this case, Ken. Especially with the upper wing sitting on top if eight cocktail sticks!

I have no idea why this has caused so much trouble:





I'm pleased with that

That is some truly impressive brasswork.

The secret is to file off all the excess solder (both hard and soft), then give everything a good polish

It may have given you fits but the results are outstanding!

The issue was the two gas torches I have. One silver soldered a couple of joints perfectly. When I tried the next joints the torch produced a huge flaring flame which melted the ends off the axle! I stripped and cleaned it, and now the flame is too small

The other torch I have is too big and uncontrollable.

Looks like I need to buy a decent gas torch

All just a part of the game, Dave.

I think in any creative activity you usually end up demanding more of a tool than it can deliver. Then it is time to upgrade
