Numbers cut from sprue and cleaned up with minimal metal chasing and hand filing (props Manuel)-preserving all the original wax texture, junction details etc. Next is getting threads tapped and brass hang rods attached-then patina and Ready For The House.

Really nice work!
I've been watchin' from the get-go...
Are you tapping, or someone else?
What thread size?
Stoked on this!

Yes nice keeping the wax texture and made qualities; easy to become too slick but this looks great

My shoulder devil says "why didnt he just make them out of rod?"...
But then my shoulder angel rebutts condescendingly;
" um, dude, the cast texture and better patination possibilities using bronze vs brass rod!"

Oke-going to take them to the machinist to be threaded tapped with rods thinner than the number profile.

Smithy-steel welder I am not!
