Dreyfuss J3a in wood

For those of you streamlined-steam aficionados and woodworkers (or just someone who admires woodworking projects and steam engines) the latest issue of Woodsmith Magazine (Vol 41, #245) has as its cover project a wooden model of the Dreyfuss-designed streamlined J3a Hudson.  Here's a link to the Woodsmith site https://www.woodsmith.com where you will see a small picture of the cover of the current magazine (which doesn't do the model justice).   The author used mahogany and maple, resulting a very striking model that shows a lot of woodworking skills that are beyond mine - well, at least a level of patience that would be a stretch for me.

The model is O-scale - at least the author uses a section of 2-rail O scale track to display the model - hence my posting this to the 2-Rail scale forum (it isn't obvious to me where one would post these kinds of miscellaneous topics that aren't really specifically linked to a gauge/scale).

Anyway, well worth checking out if you are looking for a challenging woodworking project - or simply want to admire the same.
