    Default All aboard the Christmas express!

    I cut this train out of 2” HD pink foam on my 48” X 48” PRT alpha using the “tile” feature of VCP. The finished flats were 8’ X 32’.

    I glued 4” wide strips of Baltic birch plywood to the back side of mating edges so a simple cleat screwed across them held them assembled.

    The entire unassembled group fit in my Jeep Grand Cherokee for delivery!

    The best part of this project was that it was painted by parent volunteers!
