Grinding Forward

Work continues on the CPR plywood sheathed car.
Production casting starts this week. Etching artwork is done and the brass should be in hand next week. The running boards are being cut as we speak.
I need to get a set of parts in hand so I can build the pilot model and write instructions. If not by Valentine's Day, soon after I'll be taking orders. Hope you're as excited as I am!
Other projects move forward as well.
The NP 39000 series of boxcars are coming along.
Aaron just did a test cast to check out the pattern and what if anything he's missed.
The underframe is 75% there as are the other bits required.
I'm hoping by mid-summer for release.
And as a teaser, something else in the works;
That's all you get for now.
