I checked out a few of the hobby sites where a person can purchase the plans for models such as this. I noticed they also sold alot of the small parts pre-made such as wheels, rims, lights, etc, etc and I was wondering if you made all the parts or purchased some of them. I see now that you make EVERYTHING yourself. I like that!
Been thinking about purchasing a good lathe alot lately and I can see anyone who wants to try their hand at these models would need one. Well a lathe and a good scroll saw would probably be absolutely necessary for building them.
Anyway the train turned out GREAT! From the level of detail and the time you put into them you must really enjoy the building. Thanks for sharing your build with us it was nice to see the progression as you went along.
Everything i build comes with a redneck warranty. If it breaks you get to keep both pieces.
