The story behind the model.
No manufacture had made models of these Ultradome cars so I had to work out some other means of getting the train.
I had the car designed for me by Inner-Leaf in England (email@example.com) so I could have one.
I chose to leave the upper dome windows solid as on the cars they have several layers of window tint applied to shield the passengers from the sun and Ultra-violet rays. The lower windows only have a couple of layers of window tint, so I cut these out so you can see the interiors (if you want to add these features to your model) I have cast windows for the lower level windows – both clear and solid – that just press into place.
These are available from me on request.
