Very good. I like the shed. :thumbs: building on to insulation slabs, great idea for reduction of weight. How are you sorting your point motors etc ?

That is looking great, especially if it's total value is only 35.00 ! The track plan is very reminiscent of the Timesaver design. Should be a lot of fun to operate. :thumbs:

Cheers, Gary.

:thumbs: Excellent start Captain Pugwash, great to seen another foam board layout being built and on a tight budget using the "KISS" principles as well, this should give lots of new comers to the hobby and the forum some great ideas.
Keep posting up progress reports with lots of pictures please.Kim
