wow  :o now that looks great mate

Would it be worth to get cast. The white matal seems to sag over time i mite make 5 or 6 out of brass to sell as there is quite a bit of work on them and have difficulty finding the wheels i used for it

could get it cast so it is in 2 parts, have a cast resin top for all the detail and make the brass chassis for strengh and to take the resin top.

i know what you mean about using brass, i like using rather plastruct chassis but takes more time to get sorted

I mite investigate gettin it cast. it may be possible as you say to cast the top and build the chassis. and also buils the ramps. The next one i build i will contact the casting company about.
