I did the 90mm enclosed deck turntable kit, it took me a couple hours each day over the weekend.




It moves slowly and relatively quietly, too. Very happy with this kit. (I have another one to build, that one is an HO standard gauge gallows TT.)

Looks great Dave. Looking forward to seeing your HO version with gallows. Does the HO version have the same motor mechanism?

I added a terminal strip to make wiring the TT easier. If you look closely, you can see the block of wood I glued to the TT base, pre-drilled for the terminal strip mounting screws. What I -should have done next- was insert the wires into the terminal strip, and then screwed it into position.

Great work Dave. What would this measure out (diameter), in HO scale?
