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.

Thanks - I have always thought that those little things add just a bit of much needed identity.

That's one fine-looking car. The roof has apparently seen better days.

Thanks! That roofing I use works really nicely to convey a used tar paper//canvas that's seen some weather. The Lark Grey adds a nice fade to it that I like. Someday I'm going to run out of that paint...........

Calling this one done now....

mwbpequod Posted - 04/11/2021 : 1:32:32 PM
Moving a bit slow, but the roofing is on now...

mwbpequod Posted - 04/04/2021 : 10:01:56 AM
Got some paint of the car & tank and reassembled, so now it's touch up and work on the roof.

mwbpequod Posted - 03/28/2021 : 09:41:08 AM
Thanks, guys!

Got the rest of the underbody installed:

That one screw secures the tank in place.

Thanx Thom...

Coming along very nicely, Martin!
mwbpequod Posted - 03/21/2021 : 11:39:34 AM
Okay, lots done - cradle installed, tank mounted, railings soldered up into place, ladders added, grabs installed....next up take it apart and painting....

tct855 Posted - 03/19/2021 : 2:34:58 PM
Excellent brass workmanship! I'm all eyes looking over Mike's shoulders eager to see what's next brother.
Thanx Thom...

Have to build a cradle to hold it in place next. Probably also have to make it removable if only for painting it vs. the car body. Have to find a suitable sheet metal screw,

mwbpequod Posted - 03/14/2021 : 10:56:16 AM
And here's what goes on the other end of the car.....had a pair of Lobaugh ends and dome parts - just a matter of rolling some sheet brass and soldering everything together....

mwbpequod Posted - 03/07/2021 : 09:47:51 AM
Stripped off the old underbody bits and added new bolsters and started in on installing a new underbody.
