    Thank you ! :)
    Most of the pieces is done all by hand with the help of the jig saw Proxxon DSH.
    I used the milling machine Optimum to create the little doors and make some precision hole as those for the wheel axles.

    So awesome.:D It's starting to look nicer than the originals did. -Of course, the one I've seen was kinda...old. :lol:
    You have no idea how happy I am to see you have an outdoor paint area. -All that working surrounded by expensive, possibly antique furniture...:worried: That would scare the heck out of me!

    Ancient effect polishing of frame, wheels and roof with shellac coat. Now it's clearly visible that the paint is polish and it's not matt as once.

    The shafts' evolution. At the beginning I realized the shafts using a 5 mm full copper pipe but this kind of metal is very ductile and pliable so I decided to use the iron that is stronger than copper even if after an accidental fall of the frame the pipes get curved.
    The final solution has been the use of full quenchsteel pipes and I can guarantee that they don't get curved not even for a very little bit.

    This style is not my cup of tea at all.

    But the craftmanship I can appreciate very much.

    Great work.
