Update on my coach 64 model -part one--

This image is of my 1:20.32 scale scratch build of coach 64.
I'd like to thank Uncle Jeff, and Uncle Bob for all the excellent information and resources they gave me to complete this model.

I thought I was through with the 1:20.32 version and was about to move on to a 7/8ths scale 2.5" gauge model.
I've already have printed out the rear railing details and the side frames for the trucks.

I'm looking for a cheap way to make the trucks and tried 3D printing, but even the 7/8th scale trucks in the cheapest materials is more expensive than buying them with wheels.

So I came to the conclusion that I would have to print the prototypes for making molds and cast them out of resin.

I figured the best way is to start in 1:20 scale and work out all the issues. I scratch built a fair set of trucks for 64 but after getting a lot of data from Uncle Jeff, I realized they just to meet my aesthetic requirements any more. So I decided to build new molds and started from scratch with a brand new 3D model that is accurate as I can come without an actual pair of trucks next to me for measurements.
