      Aristocraft vs. USA Trains. Not only are the USA Trains too small, the door window is smaller yet.

       

      It's all about the eye not what shows on paper or the micrometer

      Rooster, I'll be the first to admit that I'm smitten by the Aristo girls. It's hard to look at any other.

       

      Thanks Chris. Any start date for your project? If spring ever arrives I imagine I'll put this project on hold for a bit.

       

      Paul, I make it sound worse then it is. I pick up lot's of units for kitbashing, and then grow to like them the way they are. That said, I can't afford to collect every road name.

      Actually Shane, I'm cleaning off space for it right now.

      Long hood is almost complete. I decided that it would be easiest to paint before adding the snow shields. I think I'll do the cab and nose next.

      Thanks Guys. I think that was the easy part.

       

      The design and construction of the cab is going to take some time. CN decided to ditch the flat front, so I'm working with angles which always slows construction. I'm going to hold off on the door until I have the nose in place. I think I'm going to permanently attach the top of the cab to the body to make it easier to add the snow shields. The lower part of the cab will be attached to the nose section. At least that's the current plan.
