Thanks, Bruce!

Got the side ladders assembled and mounted last night; ends are a little bit more work being mortised over the trim and slightly different in length for each rail with the slanted roof. Noticed that the roof is actually a plywood and so I have exposed end grain at the ends that needs to be closed over or painting it will be another annoyance.


I’d say that your chances are as thin as a homeopathic soup made
from the shadow of a pigeon that died of starvation…

Martin, the car looks terrific! Was the lettering done by decal or dry transfer?

Thanks!

Lettering is all dry transfers from Clover House.

You have the fun of applying each color layer by layer sealing each layer as your go along. I sort of reduced my use of Dull Coat and replaced it with Rustoleum Matte which I like the look of a bit better when I'm using dry transfers.

Thanks, gentlemen!

Was wondering if anyone had noticed that these 2 are not on Archbars, but rather Fox trucks...

Anyway, here's #6.

Martin,

Beautiful models. That's a standout color you used and you did a great job with the transfers. I didn't notice the trucks (they are sort of shadowed) but they look great.

Is this another "keep one sell one" situation?

Thanks! I had 2 pair of the Fox trucks and thought they'd look good under these cars. I had a photo of a string of reefers all on Fox trucks.....for inspiration.

Martin,

Reefers like to travel in multiples so keeping them together is easily justified.
