The resistance soldering tool just helped to solder the parts together in the hard paper gauge.

Thanks to all!l

The quality of Shapeways (or similar providers) can only be as good as the template.
For a cheap printer, the print resolution is usually very rough. That means you can see clear steps.
I created a stl-file (highest resolution) in my Cad program (Inventor) and sent them to shapeways.
Within 10-14 days I received the finished product.

Meanwhile I had milled the outer shell a second time and also made new bending templates from MDF for the larger radius.
When milling the new brass plate, I noticed that the same cutter (as before) now pulled up the edges ..... MS58 brass was ordered ..... but the behavior was more MS63 brass...
After annealing the brass plate with the flame, I was able to bend the material much better than the MS58 plate.
Previously I had removed the slightly elevated level of the edges with a sandpaper file.

For further assembly of the roller I have milled small lessons from hard paper again.

Through corresponding recesses I can fix the exact position, as in this example, the rear cab floor plate to the two side cheeks. To keep the 0.5 mm supernatant of the yellow side plates during the soldering by hand, I was too unsure.

The floor base plate itself was slotted on both sides. For this I have grooved the upper side first. The four 2.0mm brass pins served to accurately position the back side.

I'm still in awe of your incredible modeling skills and even more: your eye for detail, wear and traces/stains of time and use. I didn't dare to ask: May this work of art have a glimmer of politicallyness? The yellow cover once more vaguely reminds me of a statesman's headdress or something. Howsoever: Great work.
