Pusher Tug and its "upper wheelhouse roof"
« on: March 17, 2014, 09:38:48 am »

 :-) Morning All,
In building my Pusher Tug I have come to commence fitting Stanchions and Rails on the roof. Fitting brass stanchions and rails normally never cause me any problems but this one is,
The rails consist of three(3) horizontal bars. Two (2) are running through the stanchions whist the third rest on top,  My normal procedure is to have a plan view of the roof floor, mark out those stanchions that will take a bend and form the brass rod to suit. Thread the rod  through and then super glue into roof floor and retaining until glue has gone off.
This is very fiddly so I am wondering if any of our wiser modellers have other ideas.
Thanks in anticipation

I kind of like to build in place with rod stock


For flat bar, I create a tange, that can be set into the deck.

Because they are all mounted into the decks, they can be
removed prior to finish work, or painting if necessary.
