I used to have a rather long topic on the MoW cars that I'd built over on the Car Shop forum. There were 30-40 scratchbuilt cars in it.....

It's since dried up and blown away thanks to Photoshop imploding. And, I really had not built another MoW car for a while.....ok, what that really translates to is O have not built a MoW can for way too long and I'm having withdrawal.

Must... Build... MoW car.... Now!

Ok, let's go!

That bit of conduit go sliced up and is getting turned into barrels...

Roughing out some tool/supply boxes to fit in each end of the car. That's a hunk of 1/3" thick lead you can see in the one box. Same in the other box to give this car a little heft,

Got the sides on and the ends made...and a few nbw's used,

This seems to be about as far as some of your salvage jobs were taken before they fell in your hands.

Basic flat car body built up and a pile of other goodies gathered up to move forward with on this project.

I just finished off a Simpson Gon kit. That kit was basically the wood to build the car and nothing more - on your own for details and all the rest.

Then stumbled across a photo of a MoW car that I thought looked very approachable by building / bashing another Simpson Gon kit. Lacking that kit, I'll just start from scratch and my own stock of wood.

Thanks, Mike!

Not sure what the next MoW car project will be that I can share here - I have one that's a commission that I'd like to publish.

Have to look into and ponder the stacked pile of possibilities ,

Well done. I really like the plain, square lines of the car.
mwbpequod Posted - 09/01/2019 : 10:06:53 AM
Fast forward and done:

Nice. Interesting car.
mwbpequod Posted - 08/25/2019 : 10:39:41 AM
Ends are all wrapped up....
