This was a beast to do. It’s pinned with brass tubing, brass welding rod, even more brass pins then glued using epoxy and thick set cyanoacrylate. The model is pinned to the base with more brass and epoxy then sealed to the base with hot glue.

Was a lot more work than I expected but was a joy to do.
