Ends and roof bits installed....







Now I'm waiting for a few warm days to do some painting if I can score some flat white paint somewhere......

A bit a decent weather late last week and I was able to get these 2 cars painted and then apply the dry transfers. They still need a quick overspray to seal the top dry transfer layer, but here they are practically finished.

Very nice, Martin. What do you seal them with? Clover House says not to use Dullcote on their transfers.

Correct - not Dullcote. I use Rustoleum Clear Matte.

Been away from the salvage pile of projects busy on too many other things, but getting back now just to clear the excess out from under foot again.

Lots of repair to this car and bits reattached, etc., but probably keeping this one.

Sides were printed paper applied over plywood/compressed paper stuff. Doors open!

Beautiful models. Martin.

Maybe you know this, but the doors on the Pennsy boxcars had special hardware and were recessed when closed so that they were flush with the sides.

I like all them.

Yes, but I think that getting a kit car that's older than me to actually do that with opening doors is more than a little tricky.

Maybe when I build the unstarted kits I can at least recess the doors and sacrifice operating doors
