Making It Look Hard

Whenever I have to work with brass I always end up making a meal of it.

Bending and fitting the truss rods is always a lot more hassle than I suspect it is supposed to be.

Maybe it's because the angles are so subtle, or perhaps there is a trick or technique I haven't cottoned onto yet, but there is an almost never-ending series of tweaks and adjustments to try to get the pair of them to match.

Now they're fitted I can breath a sigh of relief and get back to the styrene to make up all the other bits that hang beneath the carriage.
