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.

Bob

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.
