Well I can't take credit for the idea. Railmaster (the kit manufacturer) recommends a low melt cerro alloy for soldering the pewter parts together. I did come up with the idea to create the sticks though, works really well. I used stay-bright acid flux, soldering REALLY speeds kit construction, plus it makes filling gaps and fixing mistakes a breeze. I did use JB Weld for a few details that would have been difficult to solder, it is as durable as solder, plus you can solder right next to it and the heat won't bother it unlike epoxy and CA.
