    • Thanks Mike,

      Here's the roof in place. A bit of sanding and cleaning up and it will be ready for the

      paint shop. I have the decals printed and just to suggest that this is a thriving

      business I have added the decal No.3.



      Next step is off to make the running portion of this wagon.

          • Great work as usual, Bob. It must be good making your own parts. Keep it up.

                • Pete, Jerry, Rich. Fred, and Dave, thanks for your comments.

                  Here she is after the paint shop. Next will be applying the decals, I am also working on all

                  the parts for the running gear.

                    • Good paint color, Bob. It will set off the decals nicely.

                      • Bob, The wagon body looks really good although perhaps in need of a soak in bleach to be dazzling white for clean laundry

                        Do you have wheels or will you make them? Here's a guy who also makes some great carts and wagons:

                        • Greg, Mike, and Bill, thanks for your comments.

                          Bill-the wagon is white, the slightly odd color in the photos is because of my lighting where I

                          took these photos. WOW, the wagon in that link is museum quality, not model railroad quality as is my model.

                          I used some brown Sculpy with a diamond design pressed in to make the seat cushion. Here it is with the decals.

                            • The decals really make it Bob. Very nice.

                              Did you just bend the roof to conform to the curve, or did you do something else?

                              It seems like thick material.

                              • Pete and Carl, thanks for posting.

                                Carl - just bent but it's two layers.

                                I have since added the plastic "glass" to the windshield and two side windows. I won't post a

                                photo because you can't see them.

                                Now I'm back to working on the running gear and wheels.
