I have a friend that requested a model train for his desk at the Railroad Museum that he manages. This cute train is about 12” long and is made from Walnut and Cherry. I have sealed it with 2 coats of shellac.

I love it. From design to realization pure 10 on 1-10 scale.

How much the time you spend on building this model?
