I am using half round brass beading at present ,but I do find it difficult to bend to the correct cab profile and even after tinning have difficulty soldering it on to cleaned brass using phosphoric acid flux and 146 solder. I may do a trial with half round plastic strip and super glue to try and get a neater result. I have tried fuse wire in he past that was promising.
I use brass wire, formed to shape around drill shanks etc. Then when it fits its location perfectly, tinned, laid in position with plenty of flux and the iron touched to the beading rather than the loco.
