Here is what I have been working on. Storage train engine for grandson. It will hold 44 toy engines and cars. Lid lifts off for extra storage. Wheels roll and arms move with the wheels. Could not have done it without the help from Dave. He helped me learn how to use the array feature in Aspire. Plus he programmed Thomas face. Last picture shows train engine I used for model. This is the first time I have used my machine for making parts.

Great looking project! Makes me think about all the hot wheels cars I had as a kid, and how cool it would have been to have a giant semi with slots in the side to "park" all my cars.

Good show Mark!!!!!! I'm proud of you.

Now that you have the file made - when does production start? I know it'll only take a 1/2 hour or so to slap one together. lol

That’s one hell of a job , nice work Mark. I’d be tempted to route the top perimeter with a round over bit so it has a radius , just in case the little guy butts his head into it

Lol... I often think of those days next to neat dirt pile
making mini 'towns'. Had to have a tow truck to get the break downs.
Get bored of that and get out the Star Wars figures. Was beat tho
I had a Chebacca w/ a crushed foot. Alot of my cars ended up
with melted wheels (playin w/ matches) and the hammer.
Those Hot Wheel vinyl suitcases were heavy when filled.
Got the goosies now....

Very Cool Mark, what about Gordon? Isnt he like the longest of the batch?
I havent seen those things in a long time, my son would go on for hours
and have tacks all over the house.

Looks like great fun, Mark. Yesterday I saw a light switch cover with the Thomas face.

Very well done Mark.... very well done indeed.

I find nothing more enjoyable than making (or fixing :) ) stuff for the grandkids.
