As my 2-8-0 shall haul a long passenger train consisting of longer cars than the standard On30 cars one can purchase
- self-making is requested. Also I can call a new toy my own: A Darklylabs A3 Laser-Cutter - so I have just to draw the parts as a vectors graph and send...
Sure its not that simple, but hey, here is the progress:
Drawing, based on a plot found in the www of the Westwood Sumpter Vally Passenger Car Kit (H0n3)
a test cut of the two side-layers - have to adjust the cutter parameters a bit...
proto typing.... bad side effect of laser-cutting: you have to get rid of burned debris before painting :-)
tin castings of the trucks
test cut of the baggage car
car steps - left after laser-cutting the cardboard - right: glued together
car steps glued to the baggage car platform side
branding with diy tattoo sticker: Ferrocarriles Gran Rey, a fictional railway line
