The independent rear suspension like that on the front has a large number of pivot/attachment points, all needing great care in setting out.  The order of assembly here shows a practical way of approaching the job. The rear axle radius arms are investment brass castings, while the friction shock absorber plates are brass etchings.  Two are required for each plate to achieve the required thickness. All parts are pinned and soft soldered the the chassis frame.
