thanks for the tips!Love the results, Naram!! The cannon barrels look realistic, without compromise As for saving the blackening solution, you may reconsider saving it. When the blackening process occurred, the chemical reaction between the brass and solution happened, so the second time it may not going to work. You may try to dilute this solution with water (experiment) before use. I use a different solution called 'Brass black' and always dilute it with water 1:1 proportion
You correct on the diameter of the brass wire for the axles. I drilled out the hole in wheels slightly to make fit. I had to press the wheels on with a vise after drilling so I had a very tight fit that did not need any glue. The paper clip idea was brilliant.
