Model boat designer now enjoying trains!


Recommended Posts


Hi! My name is Alex Sheen. I'm an Industrial Automation Maintenance Technician by trade and also own a model boat design and laser cutting business- Barracuda RC Boats, USA. My wife and I have been to Japan in 2017 and 2019. Due to current pandemic restrictions, I've had to enjoy Japan from my home in North Carolina modeling Japanese N scale trains. 


I'm currently working on modeling 1/8 scale projects- namely a 9' long SD70ACE and 4' Japanese flat cars (B-train shorty of the Koki 50000) that carry cargo containers like the 19D.


I have already found a wealth of information on this forum. 



Feel free to message me for info. Thank you.
