    Hey, cheers ,mate! Took about an hour to cut but I was in front of the fire the whole time drinking a dram or two! The material I found on the garage floor, some of that awful white paper faced chipboard which I sprayed black with car paint! Basically, everythings like my photography, if you want a pic of a steam engine you could use to build a model, I'm you're man, but creativity, forget it. So I hunted down some help and found these:

    Wonderful stuff and free. As I said, now I wish I could cut a lot larger because mines 360 x 200 x 70 mm, fine if you want a set gauge O coupling rods! ;-)

    If you meander around my flikr there is some other stuff I cut. some of the parts of the NG15 are done on the mill, the 8f is BNC (before numerical control!) and the mech is filed out of solid by hand.

    Playing with v carving letters. I spend most of my time modding the electronics, rewriting the homebrew software etc, very little doing the making stuff thing. Best to decide now what you want to do :-)

    It really is some old white paper faced chipboard sprayed in black car paint!
