It's more of a reverse kit. It was once built and now it's a kit.

Wow...that warp. I am curious to see how you address it, as I just recently purchased a similar HOn3 combine that could do with a good straightening-out. Following along with great interest, as always!

Well, once I get this LWS MP54 kit that I bashed into the combine off my bench and out of my shop, I should be able to get into this pass car project. The LWS kit had been on the back of the bench 3/4 done for more than a decade. Every time I approached it, peals of derisive demonic laughter was issue forth.....but it should be done later this week.....

I am setting aside the SN car to restore to complete these 2 reefers since that action clears more space off the stack and probably a lot more quickly as well. There was also a PSC reefer that needed a new brake wheel and staff, and now that's waiting for paint.

In any case, I picked these 2 up thinking that they were nicely done, and just needed completion.







Underbodies, some roof repair, and details all around.....

Very sharp, Martin. Got a color picked out?

Sounds like your airbrush is going to be busy soon.

I'll have to wait a bit for it to warm up for painting outside.

Got dry transfers for these 2 out of the box. States the car was "green" - leaves a bit of interpretation. When I get closer to done, I'll open up the transfers and see if that's also the roof and ends.

Also have dry transfers for the PSC car; white sides and red roof & ends. Ok, no white in stock....

Good point, George! This is for all those that think that I only work in wood,
