Week 50  This week we get the second brass bulkhead

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Issue 50 is more of the same brass work.  The vent covers that rest on the cable conduits need a little more superglue than the parts that lay flat.  However, don't overdo it !

Here is the completed fret.

Hot tip of the week

Got a bit of brass that didn't glue straight ?  No problem.  Prise it off with the tip of a knife immediately, before the superglue sets really hard.  Then simply scrape off the dried glue from both the back of the small part and the front of the bulkhead, and try again.

How many hours does it take to build the model ??
