The C-25 tender.

The tender must be cut from brass.  I don't think it will be possible to form the curves of the water legs and rear corners in steel without building specialized metalworking tools such as a miniature slip roll.  The ease of working in brass is just too alluring.  So, I'm investigating having these sheets produced in brass on a CNC turret punch.  The turret punch should be able not only to shape the pieces, but it can do rivet-punching as well.
