Very good looking parts!  I hope the lean is just lens effect from the camera!

That first Standard is superb  :ThumbsUp:....the fabrication process is faultless in outcome [internal draw filing for surface & accuracy of WEB thickness 10/10.......considering the hand cutting with the  :old: Fret Saw]

Have you used a combination of silver soldering the key tabs & structural blocks/pads & connections, then flowing soft solder for the seams?

I am sure you will be painting them in green with the fine pin striping, however if you have access to some powder blasting would render the brass surfaces more cast like and provide a perfect base for the primer paint

Hi all ...thanks for all the comments ,the lean is about 18 thou but will be adjusted with a file , the outer webs are silver soldered and the inner webs are first tinned and also the plate ,then screwed in position and the heat is reaplied and the parts then self solder , Also i have been soldering for 60 0dd years !!! There was a bit of distortion actually at the bottom as the screws in the outer fram were a bit tight and as the brass expands due to the heat there was a bit of movement going on....
