Im thinking of building a model of TTD. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I build it? It is going to be about 2 feet tall. Any ideas as to what materials to use would also be helpful. Thanks!

I would deterimine a scale before just declaring that it will be 2 feet tall. Use a small railroad scale such as Z or N, as there is a lot of scenery available in it (particularly N scale).

Find a hobby store that carries Plastruct stuff. They make scale plastic beams and trusses, that could make some parts of your model easier to build.

Is that a Q-bot in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Two feet tall? that seems a little small for a TTD Model. I'd go for Five.

It can't be that bad. A guy at SFNE Central is making a complete model of SFNE. He is doing every coaster, every flat, every building, everything. He is even doing the river. It's pretty amazing. You people should check it out.

That sounds like an enormous undertaking, There's gotta be some selective compression somewhere.

Some model building is tedious but it can still be fun. Check out sig :)

I might be able to get a pic of it, but it is going to be a while before it is finished because Im going to take my time with it. Thanks for the suggestions.

Sounds neat! Just be sure to make the tiny "Snagster may open later today" sign......are you going to make tires for the trains? :D
