After dry fitting all the previously made pieces I decided that I didn’t like the look of the 1/8” thick plaques on the sides of the cabin so I pried them off and made new ones. I also decided that the walnut cylinders weren’t right either.
I photocopied the side trim pieces again and glued them to maple and walnut 1/16” stock. I then used a Sharpie and made the lines on the walnut thicker inside.
These were then cut out the same way as the originals and glued to the cab.
Next I drilled a 1/4” hole through the centre of the re-made 1” cylinders and a 1/8” hole in 2 of the end caps as shown on the plan.
These were glued together. I’ll finish drilling the 1/8” hole once the glue has set.
I did the layout, drilling and cut the cylinder mount to size.
Drilled, cut to length and sanded.
