I have a possibly new soldering technique. I leave the largest piece, with the most solder points attached to the fret. Then I make the various welds, file and remove it from the fret. This offers much greater control of the pieces. Unfortunately, I am out of town at the moment. But, I will post some photos, when I get home. Oh, this works great with a soldering iron, as well.

Be looking for it.
In this scale a real pain.
1/6 scale pretty easy.
Heck most times in 1/6 scale not even needed. LOL
