Not so, Allan.  I watch your every move and try to copy.  :lol:

Anyway, I've taken a shot of the carcass . . .



It bears some explanatory notes.  The cross members are being glued to some plates which are across the joints to the side rails.  I've put the roof panel into the bottom to keep it all square while the glue sets up.

The plates for the bottom bearers can be seen up against the inside of the roof panel.

It will be light and strong; like an aeroplane wing.  I will have access to fit the floor (which will only be partway across), and the doors and their opening mechanisms.

I hope that helps.  :lol:

Well Max, and though you say you copy me, I would call that advanced carpentry whereas a bag of nails and a hammer is about as advanced as I get !

Following this with great interest Sir.

Allan.

Max, great progress. It looks very clean and smart in your railway room, do you, cut your MDF elswhere or do you have some super-dooper dust extraction kit?

I've been considering not watching your posts for some time Max - thay always make me feel like Mr Messy .................:oops::oops::oops:

Everything you tackle is so neat, clean and tidy.  No wonder you can hard wire sound chips into Terrier locos !!!!  Your wiring is always a joy to behold.  I'm not surprised you don't need an A4 pad to record it all.

Do you have some kind of panel saw for cutting the MDF ?  I'd struggle to get a piece that size cut so true on my bench saw. :???:

Not only excellent modelling but probably the cleanest work area I've ever seen. :cheers:cheers:cheers

Hi Peter

Thanks for the compliments.  :thumbs

Where I need long pieces of MDF for panels, I take the 150 km round trip up to Sol's place.  There is a wood supplier near to him who has a panel saw and who takes the trouble to cut accurately for me.

For the ware house, I bought one sheet 2.4 metres x 1.2 metres and I had him cut two x 250 mm strips off it for the walls and one 150 mm strip for the roof.  I had the rest of the sheet over and the whole lot (including the cuts), cost A$10.50.

Then I went to Sol's for a cup of coffee and was back home before lunch.

If I need further cuts, I nail a piece of 16 mm MDF through the sheet to my bench and use it as a guide for my circular saw.  The bench is 3 metres long, so once I clear it there is plenty of length there.

I have to cut a 65 mm piece for the awning, so that's how I will do it.

Any smaller cuts I do on my radial arm compound saw.  It will take timber up to 300 mm wide.

The tidiness is just down to my OCD.  :lol:

A 150 mile round trip here in the UK is an event in its self especially if it takes in the M25 and any trip up the M1 coneway needs careful planning and plenty of sandwiches !

It's only 150 km which is only 93 miles, Allan.

150 miles is 241.5 km.  Much further.  :lol:

The km's are what's good about France too Max.  When I set off for UK from here and see Paris signed at around 600kms, your heart sinks at the thought of it all. 

Then, when you realise it's just over half that distance in miles (my car is UK bought), it flutters into life again.  It's still around 580 miles to the ferry in Zeebrugge though............:sad::sad::sad:

A 90 mile round trip is 50 miles closer than my nearest half decent model shop. :cheers

I always remember that 100km = 60 miles because many years ago I took great pleasure in telling people my old car could do 100 :roll:

Here are the five roller doors . . .



The corrugated styrene is 1 mm thick.  It has a 2 mm styrene stiffener glued to the back, with a rectangular hole cut out to make a void.

The void has a piece of lead flashing captive in the space.  This is to give the door a bit of mass and also to lower the centre of mass.  This should give a pendulum effect, which should help with the lowering action of the door.

Time will tell.
