Thread: BUT Railcars

  1. #1

    BUT Railcars

    At long last I'm getting near the end of the 700 Series build.













    There is still a good bit of work to do to finish them before finally attaching the roofs and the water pipes but that's after I test the engines.

    Thanks Guys for your kind words of encouragement, it's appreciated.

    John, I have to confess I cheated. I cropped a picture of the engine and scaled it down to fit. then I printed it off on photographic paper, stuck it onto a piece of plasticard cut to shape and fitted it underneath. It did not escape your eagle eye.

    Lovely job and a cunning bit of work with the under frames. Fine paintwork too.
    Whither atrophy?
