    Default tell you what.

    I'll gather some bits and pieces together and I'll do a photo how to. to anwser your question. I used a part of an scrapped hopper for the bolster. Since this was going to be used in a coffee table layout, I didn't take much care to do underframe detail. Its just a piece of flat steel for weight. But for the "how to" I'll do a better detailed version.
