Lastest Test Design for My Trains Layout


#1

A Control Tower for the train yard. The final product will be made from PG Basswood and have lighting inside (that’s the easy part) The outside is a plastic sheet the has a concrete block texture look. The chimney will be brick and the roof will actually look like a hip roof. The roof will be the tough part cause it will need to be hand trimmed to fit and have a the slope.

The plastic sheet is from MicroMark and .5 mm thick and was cut on the GF using draft-board as a backing. Cutting setting was 170 and 30. No smoke, flame, melting or warping…
