Pluggin' away at the practice loco. 
This isn't a loco construction tutorial, it's more of a what not to do tutorial.  
Tons of problems to fix.
I didn't want to spend more money on more plastic, so I'm using the thin sheet I have and some other stuff I got from China to do everything. 
The back opening, is a beast because the the little flat piece is hard to bend. 
Still haven't glued the top part of that.   
Cut off the cast on roof sill. Put on my own. 
Filled holes on the front and then attacked the little window pieces.
This was when I started thinking maybe I should stick to an oval of track and a ready to run set. :bang: :bang: :bang:

And of course, I've got glue finger prints on everything. hee hee hee 
I keep telling myself, "Just wait till you get it painted, then you won't notice a thing."  :P 

But hey, At least I can also say -- I IZ UH MODUL RAYEL ROETER!

Did I ever mention that I like trains?
