From our test bench

One of the fun things we get to do at Wheels of Time is developing our product from paper ideas & assumptions to finding our the best process to really makes it work. This helps us refine our writing our instructions for these kits (which we are currently writing) - and gives our clients a clear and hopefully a excellent experience in builidng our Wheels of Time kits. Below are some photos of our N scale Southern Pacific Chair car (a.k.a Espee language for luxuary coach) from our test bench. Enjoy.
