Thanks for looking in :).

It was not so difficult the bend the brass.
Take a wooden rod with the correct diameter
Take a piece of brass.

Image

Take two pliers and force the brass around the wooden rod.

Image

Cut the brass, bit of sanding and that's it.

Image

That's for the first ornament and the C and Q.
For the second ornament I've bend the brass two times around the rod.
Regards,
Wim

While still busy on the stacks I started with the wheelhouse.
I've tried to construct it with 1mm plywood but it went wrong on the windows.

After several tries I've made it out of plastic card.

yea, sometimes plywoods like that can be very unforgiving. it's almost like you'd need a die punch. Billing's uses plywoods like that......very hard and rigid. the use of the plastic card is a good idea. I usually use basswood flat stock in these cases....1/16 & 3/32. it cuts well with a sharp knife. it's good to see the progress you do...your doing a super job, and the CQ is really coming along. :D
