I managed to finish a couple of cars this week:



A new Atlas FMC 5347 Boxcar kit, painted with Scalecoat II Reefer Yellow and Floquil Platinum Mist Paints, then lettered with Herald King Decals. Car was built in 1979 as part of the IPD Boxcar boom.



Walthers 50' Steel Express Refrigerator Car Kit, installed all the wire grabs after drilling myriad #80 holes. Painted car with Scalecoat II Pullman Green and lettered with Champ Decals. Car was built in the late 40's and used in mail and express service on passenger trains.

Thanks for looking!

I managed to get a couple of cars done this week!



Intermountain 40' PS1 Boxcar with PS Door scavenged from a McKeen kit, added A-line Sill Steps in place of the plastic ones, painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and lettered with Mask Island Decals. Prototype was built in 1960 and used in general service.



Atlas 5700 CF Covered Hopper, painted with Scalecoat II Reefer Yellow and lettered with Oddballs Decals. Prototype was built in 1979 and was mostly used in plastic pellet service but some were used in grain service like this car for light weight grains that would cube out in smaller hoppers before they would weigh out.

Thanks for looking!
