This is a scale model of turtle for a fountain project. The final product will be 7 feet long and made of bronze. ImageImage

That's going to be cool. Are you going to braze it together or do the pieces attach to a frame?

Brazing and the plan is for the pieces to have u shaped brackets inside so the parts appear to be floating.

Very nice Markus, would like to give that TipTIG a try. Is this stainless or maybe duplex?
