Assembled the "box"....



In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

Martin,

Your latest catches the eye for sure. It looks like a home-made job, not quite ugly but not quite handsome.

Then it's doing just what caught my eye about it - derived from a 2' gauge car that I just decided that I wanted a standard gauge version of for fun.

Nice looking work as usual. I like the square tubing and wire design on the end handrails. Which 2' gauge car is this based on?

I think it's the same car I built in HOn30, though mine's a bit simplified:

Again, nice work!
