Feeling a little better about the roof done a lot but it doesn’t show much at this stage.
I’ve got these major part glued up and needing to just shave or flatten it and one false move and I’m going to be starting over.
I thought this was supposed to be relaxing.
Can you say sand sand sand.

I haven’t glued the roof on yet need to do a search on seating and yes Alex the bar MAYBE???

I think the shape of the roof looks great. But I know how you feel. When I built the cabin to my train I completely scraped the whole first cab I made because I was not happy with it.

Bret that got me to thinking and I did the same thing when I built my excavator.
The cabin was nearly done and I just wanted a more modern looking cabin.


Much better me thinks.
It’s funny but T&J just last week came out with a newer more modern looking excavator.
