I went out and purchased my own pegs so that I could not be accused of getting glue on the cloths.

I finished the coal skip this morning. The paint job is rough and leaves lots of room for weathering but I am in a hurry to get the photos to the bloke who is going to be making and marketing the model.
The truck (bogie) is held in place by a screw through the hole in the base. The knuckle couplers are held in by small screws. It runs like a charm.



The next project is a small station office also in 1/48 scale. (or 1/43 depending on what people require ).
That is the beauty of the laser cutter. It is easy to rescale.

Here is a preliminary photo of the station office without its roof.



The brick work is textured so it really does look like stone.

Here are some more pics of the station office.
More painting and weathering yet to be done.
First I glued on sheets of 1.5mm card.

Then I added the ends to the roof.



Finally I laid the strips of shingles over the card and glued them in place with PVA.
A touch of paint and ....




Here is the finished article.
The windows and doors were cut from card in three parts and assembled. Painted and glued in the holes.
I love laser cutters.
