Working on the roof
Still having fun trying to get a feel for the roof shape and just not happy with it but the builds not over yet.
First I wanted to get the wheels put together so I would be able to see it in it’s full shape.
I left the tongues long so I could adjust it if need be later.
The caboose felt like they were a little short so will be able to adjust for that by making these a tad longer if need be.
Gluing up the roof and over head windows.
Now I’m just shaving off small bits at a time trying to see the shape .
Want a little over hang but not to much, but how much is too much.
Now I can start to get a feel for what the roof needs.
This is where to toys and joys plans really shine, just copy the full size drawings and it’s done and right for their version.
This is my high tec rounder maker.
I know this doesn’t look like much but I’ve got a bold spot where I’ve been scratching my head trying to figure this one out.
That’s all folks
