Nice! For some reason, I never thought about using scraps of scribed siding for these kinds of jigs.

Mike, great idea for combination drilling and bending jig! Are you using brass or phosphor bronze wire?

Bill,

Thank you.

The wire is phosphor bronze from Tichy.

Okay... looked over what yer doin'... and how yer doin' it... and all I can say is... BRILLIANT!



Like the others, never entered my mind to use scribed siding to make jigs, but doing so would lend itself for the jig to be nice and square.

I say there, ol' Chap, well done! Well done, indeed!

Andre,

Thank you for the superlatives! Best of all, those little scraps are free.

Mike

Bob,

Some of the early railroads that grew into sizeable systems like the NYC, PRR and LV (in those days) each went their own way and had fairly distinctive designs. The NYC ran large fleet of boxcars with the unusual roofwalks discussed on another thread, the PRR had those wooden ladders and tunnel brakes, and the LV liked those small cupolas.

Mike

the lack of standardization is one of the things that I really like about the era. Knowing that I'm still often surprised by the diversity that existed.

Two years ago I built a Bitter Creek 34' boxcar kit with a few modifications to the fascia and door hardware to model a Michigan Central "Canada Southern Line" car. Recently I realized that I had never completed it, so I finished the lettering, applied a little weathering, and here's the result:



These are really nice kits and I look forward to constructing more in the future.

Mike

Looks GREAT!

I think I'll enjoy BC's kits once I get to that point.
