Given its scale and the billboard sides I bet thatís a very impressive car to see in person. You did a fine job.

Thank you, gentlemen!

Off to the next box in the queue in the shop. It's an old Bob Peare box but I'm pretty sure that the parts inside did not originate from a Peare kit.

Looks like someone started to lay out a side door caboose. Scribed siding is a plywood; loads of fun opening up holes for the windows and doors. Well, I'll have to spent a bit of time excavating window and door castings from the parts bins and see what I have that is suitable and then get to work with the scalpels, And, that floor and roof are not going to work at all; wrong contour. Looks like they came from an old Picard kit. Toss those into the tub to go to the next O scale meet. And, I've got a n extra cupola in styrene(?) and a pair of wood airtanks(?)..... Into the parts bins with those...

Dang, Martin, looks like you put these cars together quicker than I can open the box and study the contents. Very well done. Love every one of them.

Got the sides roughed out, holes cut out for everything, and doors fabricated and installed.



On to the cupola and ends...

It's good to see the construction/assembly approach for these old wood cars. (I have a couple of Northeastern wood passenger car kits on the shelf...)

It looks like a drovers caboose.

Yes, a drovers caboose, but somewhat shorter than any of the prior ones that I have built. Cupola is proving "entertaining"

Compliments on the Pabst car, and on to checking this one out too.

Martin,

Glad you're "enjoying" the build! I'd call the "entertaining" bits a "cultural experience," mostly because my efforts along those lines tend to lead me into interesting new forms of vocabulary...

Looking good!

Getting the cupola bits roughed out.

[url=https://martinbrechbiel.smugmug.com/Cabeese/Peare-Box-Caboose/i-hmc9HtB/A]

and starting to look at the ends - not the plywood scribed siding, but just regular scribed siding so a little fragile.

Got the car assembled around a wood block floor that was skinned with scribed siding and then framing was added onto that surface.

Martin,

That looks so nice. It gives me a hankering to order a LaBelle passenger car kit to build.

Itís going to be a handsome car.
