Hello Martin.

Isn't the "next in line" the payroll car?

I'll be watching with interest!

Yup!

That's the payroll car kit.

Done now as far as I'll take it.









Next in the queue is something a bit off the beaten track and so a new thread will start...

Martin, I haven't seen a payroll car kit in years. Great build! I particularly like the color and the clean work.

Thank you, gentlemen!

"globe vents" - the vents that the kit supplies were missing from this particular box of fun so I substitutes in the ones I had in my parts bin - 2 birds in one project - car is done and vents are gone!

I've got 2 more of the things - drop me a line if interested - O scale. There's several colors on this actually since I did the decking a brown, and the canvas/tarpaper roof that I do is a dark Lark grey, bits are 2 different blacks, and the main body is an SP freight car color that I like now and again. The castings were annoying and had to be re-shaped a bit to mate up with the roof curvature and all. Did decide to glaze and then install shades in all the windows - just some blue/green/grey paper that came from some kit as roofing material.

Martin,

Very nice. That's a lot of work picking out the different colors but the results are excellent.

Building these old kits is a hobby in itself.

Well, if you're going to invest some time in these sorts of kits, grabbing several bottles of Floquil out of the rack seems to be the right thing to do to dress them up. And, I figure that I might as well use up the paint as I use up the kits and detail parts since the paint is slowly going to go bad - found a bottle of Tuscan last week that was solid.

And full of good play value!

Nice job on recovering a hidden gem. I like what you did with that Ambroid payroll car and am looking forward to seeing the completed boose.

Thanks!

I think that those trucks are actually old Walthers trucks - if not, then they are Lobaugh trucks.
