Total Ellipse

More elliptical entertainment for you today - this time as I begin work on the main bodysides for 'Bodysgallen'.

These are quite simple to knock up with relatively few, thick, pillars compared to your average carriage.

It also has two distinctive Pullman windows at either side so it was ovaltime again and the challenge was not to make a horlicks of it.

(Did you see what I did there?)

It took me a few goes to get them right. The key is getting the size of the guide triangles in the corners correct.

My first attempts were either too thin or not tall enough. These windows are a lot fatter, and more circular than the ones on the doors. I got there in the end though.

Here's a before and after shot.
