About that "lovely tunnel", thinking about it
Belgium having been invaded by whatever you name it , Romans, Germans ( 3 times or more ) , Vikings, Frenchs, Spaniards, Austrians , Dutchs I think the machicolation, towers were not built just for a decorative purpose.

I started the plastic version of the bicabine steam tramway.
It's not an easy project, but I think I'll be able to finish it.
At least it gives me some experience in scratchbuilding with plastic card.
Here are 2 pictures.

Yes I agree and the sheer fact that you are building it from nothing is also inspiring keep it up

Thank you Marquette and richardedmonds for the encouragement.
I have to admit that it took me 2 months to decide to tackle the pasticard version of the steam tramway.
I was lucky to find an article on the web that describe the technique of scratchbuilding a carriage.
That was exactly what I was looking for.

Like your technique Biased keeping everything square is a major part of the battle, yours looks nice and sharp as well so all things being equal i think you are doing a great job

Thank you richardedmonds for taking some of your valuable time to reply, and thanks for the encouragements too.
I glued the 1st half of that steam tramway using that gadget

But I prefer the 2nd choice, an 1x1x1x1 inch angle plate ( from Micro-Mark ) and some Scalextric magnets ( I'm a 64 years old kid who still enjoys slot racing and Subbuteo footie ( Chelsea of course ) )

Jacques nothing wrong about being a a 64 year old kid, I am 58 so I know where you are coming from. As for subbuteo I never played that in years my best mate had Chelsea and my Arsenal beat them 4-2. We used to play league games in my front room but that was about 45 years ago. I still have my old teams somewhere though.
