Hey everyone,

For my Crouch Line project I've got several structures that need to be built which cannot be found anywhere.  I'll be the first to admit that I'm not that great with styrene and glue for HO scale structures.  If it were a larger scale, I'd just scratch build them, but HO is just too small for my patience unless it's a kit.

Despite my lack in dexterous skills, I do have AutoCAD and a knack for designing parts so I was wondering if anyone knew of a custom laser cutting service?

I would go with 3D printing for really small detail parts, but for walls, roofs and floors it would be nice just to get cut parts and glue them together.

Thanks!

--James

James, what you might try is sending a PM to Rich in Salem, OR. I haven't heard from him in some time but he runs/ran? RSLaser co which made laser cut kits and offered custom work also. Look in the MEMBERS section here, maybe you can get in contact with him.
Good luck.

Woodie
