Looking good Rick. Won't be long before you're skidding logs.

Sintra is an American brand name for PVC foam board. There may be something similar under a different brand name in your country.

Thanks all for the interest in this little project
I finally have some more progress to show.


I thought it might be a good idea to explain that I lay out each segment on card stock before transferring to styrene or Sintra sheet.  That way I can make all the mistakes and changes on the card and not mess up the styrene sheet.



Cutting out the .040 Styrene skins for the vertical arches, I have been using the E6000 glue to laminate to the Sintra.



Here is one of the vertical arches with some of the wrappers on and the holes drilled for the start of the wrapped cutouts.



A couple of shots of the vertical arches completed and attached to the angled arches and tracked wheel assemblies.  The card stock beam pattern is in place to give some perspective and to make sure the measurements are correct.  Notice that the brass has all been burnished with A-Westís ďBlacken ItĒ, things are moving along.




Thanks for following along.

Well the main beams are done nothing left but the Fairleads, hitches, cable guides, and paint/weathering.
