the tiles are printed on paper, to make them realistic I covered with transparent adhesive tape and marked the lines with a glass cutter

Wow!!! I'm stealing that idea for tiles. That looks great!

Looks like a super nice kit with lots of detail. You are doing a great job of building and finishing it. I hope it is actually 55 centimeters long. 55mm would only be about 2 inches. Keep posting.

Yes of course I mistake.. model is 55cm long.

I have made windows in real glass, is easy like polycarbonate but much better.











then I finish the wooden mosaic with around 300 12mm bits of wood



same work outside, I space wood tables with a ruler








After a gloss paint I glue wallpaper for last.

The seats..

I have assembed the frames and painted metal with shellac (work perfect like primer) , then I have paint with brown water based Vallejo colors and glossy Humbrol.





I rounded the corners and edges of the wooden cushions



I glued the silk with vinyl and I put a sponge with a weight to make the fabric adhere to the edges



I cut the corners and folded the fabric on the back






this is the result







the third class benches are more complicated





I made the luggage nets and even these were not simple to build, I made them on the bench on a double sided adhesive tape





finally, now I'm doing the doors.
the toilet door opens on two hinges, the others open on pins







these are the doors that open on the pins, for now I have finished only one

That looks like a lot of work, and you are doing a fantastic job. Loved the details and the pictures.

Very nice job on the seats. Looks similar to what I did on my Mexican train so I know how much work it takes. I have never seen a coach rest room that opened to the outside, very interesting. It is all looking wonderful!

wrighizilla;

My goodness but that coach is looking comfortable. I may have to re-watch the movie "Honey, I Shrank the Kids" to see whether I can get shrunk small enough for a ride in that coach!

Best wishes,
David Meashey
