THE COMPLETE SET OF DRILLING, HANDRAIL BENDING & CUTTING, PART PLACEMENT
AND ASSEMBLY JIGS, TEMPLATES AND FIXTURES.
THESE ARE SOLD AS A SET. ONCE YOU HAVE THIS SET ALL OF THE TEMPLATES AND
FIXTURES CAN BE USED FOR AS MANY MODELS AS YOU WISH TO BUILD.
This Template is used to locate and drill
holes for the Main Handrail Bases and Stanchions, the Coupler Cut Bar and
Pilot Grabiron and Railing.
These parts make up the Main Railing Bending Template. The 1/32" plex
parts are glued to the base by the modeler. The railings are bent from
.020 wire, trimmed off at the edge of the plex base to give the correct length,
then the intermediate stanchions can be soldered (or glued) to the underside
of the railing and also trimmed to length using the edges of the plex base.

The round holes allow for soldering (or gluing), and preventing
the parts from sticking to the baseplate during fabrication.

1/32" Thick Wire Bending Forms

Pilot Beam Grab Iron and Main Handrail

Hood Detail Location & Drilling Template.
This piece locates the Hood Access & Sander Hatches. Also, the Hood Railing

Additionally, the trapezoidal piece is used to form the Pilot Beam Railing.
These two pieces are laminated together to be used to trim the Pilot (Cow-Catcher)
Tube Rods to proper length and to form
the bend in the two center "tubes" to fit under the coupler.
As previously mentioned, unless you lose or break
a part, this should be a one-time purchase.
The set is sold separately for your convenience.

Wood Roof Detail Set
This set contains the wooden parts required for making the
Ft. Dodge, Des Moines & Southern Cab Roof Details.

The curved Formers are cut from 1/32" Plywood with pre-cut
notches for ease of assembly. The "matting" is cut from sticky backed 1/64" plywood.

Note the locating tabs that hold each strip in place.
The backing paper is simply peeled off and each strip "nests" into place between the tabs on the curved part of the Formers. Once
the matting is pressed in place, the tiny tabs are easily cut with an
X-Acto knife, the outside wood frame is pulled away leaving
the strips attached in perfect alignment.
The wooden Running Boards seen at left, are cut from sticky backed 1/32" plywood. The slots accept the tabs on the flat spot of the Formers (seen at right) allowing for ease of assembly and alignment of parts.
