While the top structure was still removable, got to get the underbody bits installed.



Trussrods are not up on the queenposts yet, but after the glues sets, they get lifted into place with the turnbuckles placed correctly

Martin,

Wonderfully detailed MOW car, a real winner in my estimation.

And, here's the roof all framed up!







Two alignment posts in the corners at one end and a slot that wraps around the gantry I-beam and lets the end of the roof rest on it.

Well, here's the wrap up and finale....with Larry inside pondering a problem and his brother Darryl outside with his other brother Darryl.











On to the next MoW car.........

Thanks, guys!

Have not built one of this level for a while so it's good to know I still can since I just got a commission to replicate one of my older cars - blacksmith car. Only issue is that was long ago prior to my recording all with the camera; best solution though is to put that car on the bench and get to work. But first, I have to order a stack of detail parts.

In the meantime, on to the next in the queue and back to a somewhat less complex effort for the next car.

Next in the queue or stacked up MoW cars to build - starting point the basic flat frame and 2 end blocks.
