Justin, Glad you like it!
Pete, I gently spread the 'ears' of both ends, insert the 'cross', squeeze ears back around the cross.
Danna, Thank you!

Your giving me flash-backs to my youth reading How To articles in Model Car Science or Car Model. Don Emmons, Jim Keeler, or Dennis Doty couldn't have taught any better. Amazing workmanship. And to mimic everyone else, keep up the inspirational work.
Thank you for sharing!

Thanks Steve, I get most of my brass from K & S Enginerring, but most LHS don't stock their full line. You can order online thru.. www.caboosehobbies.com In the search engine just go to the manufacture option and scroll down.

Ahhhhhh ... Caboose! Heaven on earth.
Been "lost" in there for hours on end, many, many times.
If only they'd clone that baby down here.

Danno, Don't you know it
Hi Mike, Like your theory!!
Using the radiator casting from the '37 Ford kit but it is blank on the front side. Probably will see thru whatever I come up with for a nose on this thing so made up a rock protector screen..
As noted earlier this will be paint as I go on the frame....

Here is a mock up of the engine in place, lots to do on it.....

The spindles and tierods are not connected yet so the front end is just flopping around, working on the hubs and hopefully will have a rolling chassis next update,
As always, comments are welcomed!

may i ask how much money the brass cost you to build the chassis and all the other components ? not wanting to be rude so sorry if it upsets you just need to know what im looking at as far as cost thank you

I mutter vague profanities.
I bit my tongue because it was hanging out.
It's metal... and yet, more detailed than plastic.
Oh, and it's un-freakin'-believeable!
Like seeing a UFO, I don't know how, I just know it is AMAZING!
