Cut the first two oval shaped windows and installed the frames. In doing so found out that a large area of that side apparently wasn't. prepared properly for the primer. Other areas may show up as I cut openings for the other windows. LiG

Bill, thank you, I used a Dremel to get the rough cut then a small half round file. The trim and filler hides all the imperfections and the paint will hide the rest. LiG

Was a nice day yesterday so brought some power tools outside and rough shaped the roof. Realized making the roof of the same wood as the previous cars mede it very top heavy as this one is primarily plastic. Cut out the centers of the aligning base and the first 1" layer of roof, lightened it up by 13oz. Finishing shape will be done by hand using the same guide as the others. LiG

I'm trying something different with the doors. Made them separately with frame surrounding the door and frame surrounding the window opening. Marked locations and removed the area on the car where the clear will ultimately go inside. So far so good.

At the 2016 NGRC a couple friends were offering 3D printed McKeens, both 55' and 70' cab unit plus the trailer in 1:32. Mechanicals were made by MMR Kermit Paul, body mostly by Eric Moe. I've yet to paint mine as I'm waiting for my trailer, but it runs very smooth and the power truck is amazing with the big flywheel on the side. I'm currently building a model of the Super Chief diner in Carson City which was, for a time, Virginia and Truckee #22.
