I really wasn’t liking the cabin and when I routed it around the edges I got the wild hair to route out the windows and now I really don’t like it, so here’s my second try.

NEW

OLD

Being more open it looks bigger but it’s nearly the same size.
I also made a solid walnut engine compartment and pipe.

Did a lot but it just doesn’t show this close to the finish.
Till next time.

Crowie Dutchy did you happen to see what I did wrong?
I was in such a hurry to get it glued up I forgot to cut out the front and back windows.
Got it fixed and learned some new to me tricks along the way.

Small oversight than can be rectified by a clever craftsman as yourself…..

Crowie if I was cleaver it wouldn’t have happened in the first place.
I finally got up the nerve yesterday to glue up the big parts and put some hand rubbed finish on it, that sassafras really looks good with the walnut..
Just glue up the tracks and a few other small parts and finished.

It’s 35 in the shop BRRRRR

This is turning out nicely. It will be a remarkable miniature with a wealth of detail. You have to be a diligent and patient craftsman to cope with the many details.
