Well here goes...
As suggested I am starting a new topic focusing on how I make small tinplate wagons for my Hornby MO Layout.
Here is one I made earlier...
Please Note: When working with sheet metal and power tools - always wear protective gloves and protective eyewear as well as any other PPE required. It’s a lot easier than a trip to the ER!
First of all I draw up a design in a very basic 2d CAD program. (That’s all I know how to use) and print out the design.
Then I use PVA glue to glue it to some 0.6mm Zincalume sheet from the hardware store. And after letting the glue dry use a Stanley knife to scribe the design on to the zinc sheet.
To be continued..
