Next box of goodies in the queue that claim to be a MoW car waiting to be built.....



Lots of wood, a nice brass K brake casting, some nice brass steps, and other "stuff".

It's no wonder I can't find 1/2 of the parts and supplies I know I have - they're all spread out and inside the stack of project boxes!

Yep. I recently rediscovered some 'lost' wheelsets that I KNEW I had purchased, and I had - and then promptly divvied them out into the kits I thought I'd be using them in. No doubt I will, but in the mean time I had other plans for them so I ended up robbing Peter to pay Paul, even though I had given Peter the goods to begin with!

Looking forward to see what this box of goodies becomes.

Slow going on this one since there too many other projects in the way, but some progress. Basic underbody framing and train line installed

Got the roof overhand ends are settled out as well. Bit of 4x6 card glued on top and individual boards glued underside of that - quite stiff and strong. Just trim to what's needed and done.





Rough out the sides and ends next and maybe more on the underbody.

Sides and ends roughed out and with mounting bits glued into place.

Started in on adding the underbody bits...

Mike,

I frequently don't know what it's going to look like until it's done,

The lack of constraint is where I have the most fun!

I have found that if I change the poles from plus to minus and from minus to plus that I am capable of bestowing animation upon lifeless matter....

Moving on......got the doors and windows set into the ends and sides all slightly modified, cut apart and reassembled and bits added here and there...

No turnbuckles on the truss rods? (Seems to me that by the 1880s, turnbuckles were pretty much standard practice.)

Look again, Dave. They are there on each truss rod, Look for the familiar Tichy rust red color bits. The truss rods just are not up in place and so the turnbuckles are also not quite in place yet and are off center.
