Toy Construction #256: Reading Passenger Car Gatto Plan

05-27-2019 07:16 PM by htl | 18 comments »

Got started on the Gatto passenger car that should fill out that train set.I built the Reading train a while back and then bought the Gatto plan set that goes along with it for the cars.This is Plan#29I almost didn’t build it because it’s so long and with the other cars and Train will really be a long one for sure.As you can see in the picture I clamped down a board to the edge of the table so as I glued up the sides I could add some pressure as the super glue kicked in.Not shown ...
