Subject: [RealSTMFC] M of W Crane
I’ve been working on a crane which was owned by the
Yosemite Valley Railroad. For the past week or so I’ve been concentrating on
the “flat car” frame for the crane. It was constructed from brass flat stock
and brass channel. One of the jobs was adding Archer rivets to the sides.
Getting the smallest rivets (in line with the bolsters) with only four rivets
on a thin strip of carrier was frustrating…there just wasn’t enough carrier
material to keep from breaking the strips apart. So I cut some more small
strips and brushed on a coat of Vallejo acyclic gross varnish. Once dry, they
went on without problems.
Just an idea to keep in mind…
