Red Armoured Train 
I took a break from the command wagon this morning and decided to crack on with the locomotive. This involved cladding the toy engine in strip wood panels which will get an outer layer of plastic card armour plating later on. This wood is great to use as it cuts like cardboard and doesn't crush or splinter like balsa. It costs a bit for a mixed bag of strips and planks but is well worth it. I got mine from Hobbycraft ages ago for about a tenner.
