Even more Cable Car

Continuing to make good progress on the Cable Car. Windows have all be trimmed out. Below is a view from the rear of the car looking forward.

Next and final stage is the roof. Challange is that the roof of the cable car tops out at about 13 feet. The garage ceiling is only 11 1/2 feet high....... I've resigned myself to just making the roof cuts for final assembly at the school hall. I *may* be able to cut the roof panels before shipping the who structure to school - but I'm not betting on it. Below you see the begining of the roof frame.

All those years as a kid playing with construction sets is finally paying off. See Mom and Dad - I told you that skill would come in useful one day...
