… and welcome back at my caboose project. I finished the planking on the basic body-frame.
I used coffee stirrer for the planking, which are 5-6mm wide and 1mm thick. With the different texture and color, they already provide a very authentic surface. Some of the bracing-timbers were cut to size at the bandsaw.
Next to the windows. I glued the frames on top of clear acrylic and the finished windows are than glued from the inside against the window trim. At least I made a simple roof from thin plywood, which will stay removable to get access o the interior. This will be the next project.
