    Yesterday, I've scratchbuild eight 30' sceletons for my new "Melina's Lake Logging" railroad.

    Most parts are cnc-milled out of 3 or 2mm thick styrene. This parts are the main bars milled out if 3mm styrene.

    I've used 2mm styrene for the bunks.

    The assembling has started. I've used MTL-archbartrucks with couplers, but I've cutted away the couplers and mounted them on the main bar. In center of the mein bar, I've placed a piece of brass to get more wight.

    And here they are. The MTL-sceleton serves as comparison.

    Next will be 3 boxcars and my MTL-sceletons will become new bunk's like my sceletons.

    That's great that you have a CNC milling machine to do this. Kinda makes the rest of us a bit jealous. :D

    Good work, nice results...:thumb::thumb:

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    I'll admit to being moer than a bit jealous... ;) :D

    Nice work! How about producing some kits?

    Good morning

    I'm sorry about this :oops:
    But take it easy. 10 years ago, I've started with a small handsaw and an old minidrill. To buy this mill, I've spend money over some month and stopped smoking. It's all a question of what you want or like :thumb:

    Hmmmm. Is any one interested in kits?
    It would be possible, if the numbers of kits is not to large.

    By the way, how about some bunkhouses :rolleyes:
