Martin,

You either have a special skill in finding unfinished or damaged kits or O scale modelers are more likely to run out of steam because I sure donít see many HO kits in this condition. Although I do have a couple.

Well, it's not a kit per se but rather someone's accumulation of parts that never got assembled and now I'm adding to, subtracting from to make into some sort of workable bobber caboose. It does me little good for the parts to set for another eon in a box for the next O scaler who in all probability would dump on eBay or just toss into the dustbin.

I'm going to get my fun now! Ok, and after I'm done building it, then it's a different problem. to solve as I really have no need to keep it unless I am overcome with separation anxiety,

Took the resin cast ends and hacked off the bottom bits left & right and then reshaped the curvature along the top to match that of the roof profile. End mill in the variable speed drill press working on resin is so nice!!!

Added decking to the entire top of the frame...



and then to the underside as well as a center sill.



And replaced the plastic wheelsets for nice etal ones......this bobber will need not weight to be added,

Worked out the sides.....decided to go with the white metal castings. Had to open up the holes a bit with the Dremel and files, but they fit now!

Putting the reshaped/milled ends to the roof section... End castings are not flush with the top of the rood casting. Card stock applied to make platform overhand leaving a slot between the card stock and the casting for inserting the wood for the overhang.

It is a good Sunday afternoon when the sun is shining after a solid week of rain, and Martin is posting his fine work from the car shops!
