Volker, Have you given thought to pre assembling and holding everything together with SS screws, bolts and aluminum clamps then oven soldering the wholdassembly?  I have used this method before with some success.

Bill,

yes, but keep in mind that I had to  round the rivets after soldering and there are a lot of areas not accessable any more.

Meanwhile the bridge was sand blasted by a pre name twin modeler from Buntbahn forum:








And I finished the kitchen interior. Please keep in mind that the only 'access' later on is going to be the kitchen window.














Some boiling water.





Cheers,

The bridge looks perfect. On the other hand, if you really glue down all access to the kitchen except the window I must make you stand in the corner for a month. Please devise a way to avoid that. -- Russ

Russ,

showing those pictures at your highly considered forum is my way to avoid that.


Some pictures of the burnished bridge.











I love some of the results (above), but it doesn't work well at all areas (below), depending on a lot of factors and so there's color to come.





Cheers,
Volker, preparing for a long hiatus in the corner.

Volker, The kitchen details are terrific. Perhaps you can devise a miniature fiber optic "snake" lens for you camera to avoid bannishment to the corner. The bridge is magnificient. What was there about some of the burnishing that you were not satisfied with?

Volker:
I have used hand engraving cutters to remove excess solder from brass or silver work for years.  With the great variety of cutters available almost any situation which arises can be addressed.  You might be able to find one which will shape the fillets on the inside corners of pieces which are to represent castings as well.

A 90 degree cutter can be used to open a fold line in a brass piece when you need to bend it to a tight corner.

Hi Volker I really like the floor in the kitchen. The wear and the greyness in the centre each board show that the wood has warped upwards, been worn down from use, and been mopped. It tells the story of the kitchen without rubbing your nose in it. Beautiful work.

Where is the dog's bowl.  It needs to be somewhere that it is difficult to trip over on a cloth pad to keep it from sliding when the dog eats.
