Well, I didn’t quite finish the auto car project in time for O Scale West meet at the end of this week. Rats! It seemed like a safe bet to complete the project. I even ordered fresh Star Brand paint from P-B-L .
The side view is where I have ended this week.
Lots of little details go into the doors. The upper rollers are a Camel #27 and the lower are #50. The door opener and latch are from Chooch along with the rollers.
The process of mounting the door and guides starts with building the upper door track which is a strip of .040′ x .030″ styrene. Mount the door next and build the lower track. The lower track is built up from a strip of .020″ x .060″ with a piece of .015″ x .020″ added to form a “L”.
Sorry for the short report but this has been a very busy period.
