Affordable Solidworks license

Just discovered that if you join the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association), you get a student version of Solidworks without having to be a student or veteran.
Needless to say, I am now an EAA member...

Re: Smaller Wheels That Fit 6" Grinder Arbors?

Re: Choice of prototype

So you have the resources and money to basically reproduce any steam locomotive you desire? Every engine was designed to fulfill a specific need. Pick one that makes sense. You wouldn't use a Pacific for logging, or a 4-8-8-4 for a branchline commuter...

Re: Choice of prototype

10.25" gauge? Stick to a known standard, and pick one that is in your heart, otherwise you will lose interest long before you ever get anywhere.

Re: Quality Pegboard Hooks

It's a giant country, and divided into sections like Hunger Games. It's my least favorite place I fly into discounting Hong Kong which is relatively untouched.
