I cut some pieces of .040" plastic to rough size,
and drew in an idea of what the front of the cab might be. 

It is a petty rough concept right now.

Without intending it to be a copy,
the critter cab is starting to look a lot like a cab I did a few years ago. 

I am thinking that the new critter cab will not be enclosed,
but rather, an open cab with a similar front. 

Regards, Dave L.

I found a photo of a Rivarossi Dockside,
and quickly doodled what the proportions might look like. 

I'll need to fashion a stack, headlight, and a dome. 

I'm never sure what I'll end up in the final model,
that's part of the fun. 

Regards, Dave L.

I thought my cab front seemed too squat so I redid it a bit taller and thinner. 
I still think I need to trim a little off the top, yet.

I glued a bit from the scraps box to a piece of tubing for a possible stack.
 
The plumbing fitting does not seem right for the dome. 
I'll need a smaller one.

I just keep going until things seem "right." 

Regards, Dave L.

I trimmed some off the top and I like the result.

Dave,

I've used brass caps in the past. 

You can find them in plumbing supplies and they come in smaller diameter than PVC.

Michael, thanks for the tip. 

I suspect a 1/2 " cap would work well. 

Regards, Dave

I've started to think about the cab and added the floor. 

I found this sophisticated jig to hold the parts in alignment while glue dried.
