    Propeller, great soldering job. Looks like you are using a flame technique. Check out the link below for this soldering pad. It allows you to T-pin parts in place for soldering. Works great with soldering iron, have not tried it with a flame. Also comes in a 12" x 12" size as well.

    SOLDERING PAD, 6 " x 6 "

    This is a great application for brass, to get the strength needed in small parts.

    This is one of the most interesting builds I've ever followed. Its going to get lonley around here when you finish this project so I sure hope you've got something else in mind after this one.

    Not to take anything away from the many members of this site, but its guys like you, Dave, Ken and Mario that provide so much enthusiasm and inspiration to the rest of us and we learn so much from you. Thanks so much, and keep it coming.

    Well, this is just astonishing. Almost makes Gerald Wingrove look like a newbie. And for what you're doing, your speed is impressive. I hope at the end that you'll collect all this into one build journal.
