Yep, I'm making a train...

I'm still tinkering with the Ambassador V2, but I had the sudden urge to make a train.

It's an old GWR 4900 Class, built in the late 1930's... steam powered. One in particular, the 5972 Olton Hall, was dressed up as the Hogwarts Express for the Harry Potter movies.

I'm going to pull out some old HO scale railway models to help with some details as well as using some other online resources I've found.

I'm going to be decorating it as the Hogwarts Express, but I'm also going to make it easy to change into other ones.

So yeah, here's my first 2 images of the WIP, still needs work obviously... but yeah...

They're in the invisible passenger cars.

Very cool. Not your average model. Things that are tangible can be some of the hardest things to model but you're off to a good start.

I added Harry Potter... he's right there, wearing his invisibility cloak.

I've got another project I'm messing with now too. I'll start another thread for it in a bit.
