These 2 are the first of several left over from a large box lot of cars and rubbish (emphasis on rubbish, ) that I had bought a few years ago. I pulled all of the decent cars that took only a few hours of effort to move them to either keep or depart. The rest were salvaged for parts, trucks, etc and more than a few made some great kindling last winter,

But, I kept a few on the shelf thinking that there might be something there other than just kindling.

These 2 were basically wooden boxes with a boxcar roof section all nailed together when I started.

That's single ply paper napkin lapped 50% put down with ~30% Carpenter's glue. Painted Lark Dark Grey

Excellent model, Martin!

Thank you!

Thanks, guys!

A few more bits to tidy up on the car, couplers & trucks, and then it's done and I'm off to whatever is next in the queue.

Youíve been busy, Martin. And itís paid off with a fine-looking model.

Nicely done, Martin! Nicely done.

Close to done....

mwbpequod Posted - 12/01/2019 : 1:04:44 PM
Been several very busy weeks since I've had time to get back to this project.

Got this all assemble now and ready for all the details and bit to be added.

Like Mike and the rest of us, I really enjoy watching you make silk purses from sows' ears. Fabulous job, and yes, I appreciate the "fun" involved in a way I could not have forty years ago.

Keep going, and please keep the photos coming!

I enjoy watching you make something out of bits and pieces like this.

A couple of Mainline Models kits are lurking in my cupboard but for the life of me I canít decide what to do with them. The sheetwood siding is so old and dry that every time I get them out Iím lucky if I donít break something.

Looking good as usual from you Martin'... Just, what is in that box of goodies....
mwbpequod Posted - 09/29/2019 : 11:37:24 AM
Might be parts leftover from 3 projects, neatly stored in that box. I'll be watching along.

Indeed. But it's giving me another opportunity to use up some of the excess parts I've got stashed away while being a source of good fun.

Got the basic "box" assembled with a new underbody framing and new end blocks with siding on the exterior and a new roof section....

mwbpequod Posted - 09/22/2019 : 09:11:04 AM
Sides assembled and reinforced from the back with 1/32" basswood cross grain on the back - pre-painted side parts were "variable" in thickness so getting stuff aligned with this "kit" will be something to be watched as I go along.
