Balsa Beginnings

Plans and blueprints were gathered from various sources and a build set were produced at 1:20 scale and printed out in sections and joined to form actual model sized guides. The base plate is MDF with a strip of 40x12mm pine glued to the bottom, running lengthwise. The pine strip provides strength and a mounting point for the bogies. The rest of the model is predominantly balsa wood.
