    This is a caboose I have started. It will be all card layered. I am working in full 1/1 scale on my cad but the preliminary model is 1/4" scale. I woll be able to reproduce in any scale that one would want. I started this this morning so I have not gotten very far.

    I am using softplan,,,,,a architectural program, i can do 3-d drawings of this project when i get to it,,,right now i am just designings the parts list,,i have the main body completed and am working on the trucks right now. still have to do the frame but that is a piece of cake. I set everything up in 2D full scale so i can work directly from the drawings that i have on hand. I will have to use some liberties since i dont have all the details. I am going to try to set up a full interior on it to.

    Some additional things from today. Is there anyone that would like to try this so far,it is not 100% yet, to see what bugs there might be. I will send some PDF's. I have the sideframes almost done,,the wheels are close , the chassis just needs some details and the body is about 95% done. I dont have any directions as of yet but is you have done some trains before you might get the essence of what is there,[​IMG][/IMG]

    thanks for the comments so far:grin:
