Hi Ed,
Jim needs a roof for an AF passenger coach.
I have a 1009 but not all the parts.

Jim, the non wax is Future Acrylic Floor covering, essentially it is not a wax but does the same thing.

2682

Not exactly a 2000 series since it does no have the automatic decoupler. I did paint it up.


The good thing about making a part is that it let me use the car untill I find a replacement piece.

Disney Parade Float

I have this DIsney Caboose without a Cupola so I got a little inventive and came up with a parade float. I have two Disney Figures to boot. With some craft sticks and cinamon acrylic I came up with this. Non Railroad but Fun.

Ok I'll get some wheels, and look for more characters. This is leading to a video on custom rolling stock.
The photo story is in my photo bucket(in signature) under Disney Float on how to make it. The bow was the hardest to attach. I needed two rails underneath to sit on the roof and support the bow some cross members held it but I had to add the decorative pieces to fill in the gap and give it support. The sides glued up like clapboard and gave me a ledge for the deck. Simple construction.

ARHHHH! She floats on the rails. The telltales removed. A simple project? She needs lights and a crew. Oh My. Aflag would do too! Keptain we used a blasted Exploding car frame with a block of wood in the keel.ARHHHH!
The outside loop proved her worth with no obstructions. WE have the finest bamboo skewers in her rigging too.
