INTRODUCING A NEW LINE OF MAINE TWO FOOT ROLLING STOCK FROM AMB-LASERkit AND
"THE BRIDGTON CAR SHOPS"
FIRST OUT IS A SRRL FLAT CAR. THE PROTOTYPE(S) WERE BUILT BY THE PORTLAND COMPANY
IN 1888 AND WERE 28 FEET LONG, 6 FEET WIDE. MOST SURVIVED UNTIL 1935-36.
THE ONLY ITEMS IN THIS KIT THAT ARE NOT MADE BY US ARE THE TRUCKS,
COUPLERS, GRAB IRONS, CHAIN AND NBW CASTINGS.
OH YEAH, WE DON'T MAKE THE FOUR SCREWS THAT HOLD THE TRUCKS AND COUPLERS ON EITHER.
NEXT WILL BE A SRRL BOX CAR.
THE PHOTOS BELOW ARE CURRENT (01-03/04-04) AND WILL BE UPDATED AS DEVELOPMENT PROGRESSES.
CONSTRUCTION METHODS FOR "HOUSE CARS", INCLUDING BOX CARS, CABOOSES AND PASSENGER CARS WILL UTILIZE A TOTALLY NEW AND INNOVATIVE CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUE DEVELOPED SOLELY BY US!

THE CARBODY SUB-STRUCTURE IS LASER CUT FROM PEEL AND STICK, ADHESIVE BACKED 1/16 BASSWOOD.

FOLLOW THE PHOTOS BELOW, AS THE CAR INTERIOR IS BUILT UP, THE PEEL & STICK BACKING ON THE EXTERIOR OF THE SUB-STRUCTURE IS PEELED AWAY AND THE CUSTOM SCRIBED AND
CUT EXTERNAL SHEATHING IS APPLIED USING THE PEEL & STICK INSTEAD OF GLUE..
1/16 ADHESIVE BACKED CARBODY PARTS
CLOSEUP OF PARTS, NOTE PRE-DRILLED GRABIRON HOLES.
FINISHED SUB-STRUCTURE READY FOR "PEELING & SHEATHING".
BACKING PARTIALLY PEELED AWAY
SHEATHING APPLIED - TAKES ABOUT 2 MINUTES.
NEXT COME THE "CARLINES" AND "RIDGEPOLE".
THEN THE DETAILS.
NOTE THE CORRECTLY SCALED TWO FOOT STIRRUP STEPS. ALL QUEENPOST/NEEDLEBEAMS, STIRRUPS,
AND DOOR HARDWARE ARE EITHER RESIN OR WHITE METAL CASTINGS.

NOTE PRE-DRILLED GRABIRON HOLES ON SIDES & LADDERS.
