    Made this for my son. 3 hours design time, 5mins cutting 2 mins assembling.:D

    Also a dragon I made.

    One day I will get the time to do some proper scratchbuilding but having fun making kids toys for now.

    Please forgive the retro decor but were renting for now.

    Thanks guys. I recently made a train for both of them. Took approx an hour each. Went into a big DIY chain the same day and saw exactly the same thing(though smaller) for $8 each. So I intend to make a 2' long one of my own design(still slot together) with electric motor. The only thing not made of MDF will be the gears on the motor and batteries of course. But wheels and conrods axles will all be MDF. It will be based on the Hornby Jinty that at used to play with on my grandfathers track.

    Neat stuff! Five minutes of cutting and 2 minutes to assemble? It would take me much longer than that.
