For Sale: Diesel Locomotive Stanchion Brass Scratch Build Raw Material 3-1/4″ x 0.01″ Thickness with pointed ends(12/Pack) PN#401
Brass shapes sometimes aid in scratch building models. As a hobbyist moves from Ready To Run models, to buildings kits and finally using skills to do scratch building, we encourage participating in the Art of Free-Lance model building. If we were to tell you where this part could be used, it might restrict the imagination. Brass is a nice media to work and can be artfully soldered in application to get just the right visual effect.
These brass pieces I have utilized as stanchions for hand rails on some of my diesel engines. They are formed double ended and can be trimmed to length. The ends can be wrapped around the hand rail or even spot soldered to the brass hand rail for stability. Pictured is a locomotive with stanchions of similar style.
