Man, that's cool! Where did the brass parts on the tree come from? B) :drinks

Yeah, I had the same question. They look like stantions from/for model ship railings. Are they?

BTW, Looks great!

Hey Randy, what will you do with this to keep it from tarnishing over time?

Crazy! Is that "bead" on the outer side of the fender soldered brass tubing? Such fine work- I'm dizzy! :yipee

Hi Folks,

Have to thank you all for the kind comments and apologies for the tardy response :blush: :blush:

Mike & Bob, the brass parts on the tree are handrail stanchions for steam locomotive boilers.

Chuck, The rolled edge is solid copper wire. Able to end it so the ends don't show.

Bob, Always a problem of tarnish, I spray the model with lacquer between work sessions to keep it in check.

Some progress shots...



Working on the mast which will support the pulleys and motor for the hoist...











Adding some fenders ...




Thanks for looking in!

Randy
