Look for the paper and pencil with the eraser.

Thanks Pete, that's the icon I was talking about. (sorry about the feather quill, since it was not
there I could not remember what it looked like.) It's there now but it has not been there for a
while for me.

Maybe because the Ether gods know you're fine just the way you post!

The rest of that is way beyond my pay grade....

Pete and Rich, thanks for your posts.

I check the forum several times a day but I have not been posting. Here's what's going on in my model building.

I have found a building that I would like to model but it would result in a very big model,
especially in 1/24 scale. I have tried several ways to scale it down but so far all my ideas have
resulted in it loosing it's "look". I will continue to work on that.

I have also thought about making another wagon, they are such fun. However, while thinking about
it I realized that the hardest, most time consuming part, is making the wheels. I decided
that I would make a set of wheels and then make a mold and cast my wheels in resin. That thought
led me to think about the fact that if I did the same (mold and resin cast more parts)I could make
wagons quite quickly, sort of like make it as a "kit", not for sale but for ease of assembly. I
think I might do that and base it on that delivery wagon I did years ago. That one is a
simple design that started out from drawings in an old Garden Railways magazine. I have made
changes to make it more realistic so that is what I think I will do. Most of the construction
has already been covered in my previous posts so I see no need to re-post it all but you know
what I will be working on.

This is the wagon I will be making again.




Bob

Hey Bob, I can never get enough of your modeling!
So it's great to see that you have another project, or 2 in the works.
I'll be watching for sure!

Bob,

Your ways of making molded parts seems like the way to go for sure. It will be a great rendering to follow such a fine Master Craftsman such as yourself. I will be following along with your endevors.
