Grab rail roses. This is my method, I made a styrene template to mark the centre punch points with an indelible pen.


I then punch the marks followed by a 1.5mm drill in a pin vice.
I then fit and superglue whilst spaced off a uniform distance.
The aftermarket CA applicators are very useful

How I do my grab rail stabs Soldering




This is essential to ensure flow into the joint.
Soft soldering is not weak if done correctly and it is certainly strong enough for the job being asked of it.









I never take this below 480












End game

Ha, you do same as me pretty much though I doubt I clean -up after as good as you. I had no problem soft soldering and even using plumbers flux after 20+ years nothing corroded or fell apart -yet. Of course silver soldering is ultimately better, but horses for courses and available workshop etc. Just make sure the brass etc is clean and roughed up and cleaned after. I use clip-on heat sinks to prevent damage to plastic (or crocodile clips wrapped in wet tissue), or on balsa jigs, keep adding water to stop burning.  Whatever works!

Far more important is having the bends and junctions in the right place before making it permanent. This is so much easier soldering in situ  O0


A complicated structure as pictured is not as weak as one solder joint rather it is as strong as its multiple joints working together.

Hi Andy the rivets I used are just like the ones you show the only difference is they were aluminium ones. I drilled them and put a 1mm fibre optic cable in them and several cables went to 1 LED bulb. This time I am going to look at fixing a small LED into the end of the rivets.

They look very good. Could use the 'lighthouse' leds. Couldn't use the bright 0402 leds that Ole suggested. Leds would short out.

Very careful drilling but I'm sure we could do it  :-))

The 0402 have bare contacts at either side,  will short out,


If we can find plastic ones, they will work.

That's the cabin sides and roof rails complete bar painting







Now the Cabin front rails



I use many tactics to enable soldering at the correct angles. It's important that the verticals are vertical regardless of the sloping deck

This is the best place to follow Chris. All the better quality pics are here, Facebook compresses them


I've made a 3 hole template for the next roses






10 more to make and straighten up as each one fitted.

I though I'd expand on my rose making
Washer located beneath to mark with pen



Centre popped



After some twizeling with 1.5mm bit



Turn over and hammer flat



Reason why they can only be fixed whilst in position





Eye up through bow railings to check upright











Will be fixed from below with a dab of stixall when all painting complete

Andy,
Your model is progressing so well and the various fixtures and fittings will give an overall great finish. What I really did like, though, was your process of making the working telecomms tower mechanism, which looks pretty scale-like and realistic, whilst at the same time robust in its operation. I might well be using the same approach - when I get there - but using my black Delrin rods milled to the shape required for a few parts. This does allow for the 'collapse' method of transport, thereby concealing the model away from prying eyes when travelling, and also be able to display it like most Shannons would be like when in their boat houses, but at the same time a quick and easy [realist] raise and lock-off if required when on display. I think a lot of folk will benefit from a lot of your ideas and processes, even if a few then make their own slight tweeks and modifications.
This Forum really does benefit from builds such as this. Keep up the good work and photography - so detailed.
