    Thanks guys! :D

    Actually, my parents have a laminating machine, and I used the offcuts from things they had laminated. It is essentially cheap plasticard, but you do have to use superglue to gule it, and in the front view you can see the bracing strip I had to add on the inside to hold it all together.

    It has to have gone through the machine first, otherwise it is too floppy.

    I agree. Great idea on the skirts. I couldn't tell they were scratch built.

    I liked everything about it but the tracks and metal hull. I can't see why the metal hull was needed. Makes modifying more difficult.
