Layout Progress - 29 December 2014

Today, I got around to assembly of the unloading pit and the two tower main structures.

I am happy with the unload pit but may redo the towers due to an small error on my part.

Layout Progress - 28 December 2014

Not sure if this is the last update for year 2014, so lets get started with this update.

Since the last update I have been working on the file to laser cut out the piece of the coal station. Today I got around to cutting some of the pieces, others are going back thru design and/or to 3D printing due to their small size.

First up the coal unloading pit, I am building this up in multiple layers of .06" taskboard.

Next are the piece for the main tower and base from .06" task board too.

Planning some assembly tomorrow.
