Bob,
Your modeling efforts will be well- viewed for sure. Sounds like a thought out plan to me. I don't always use an entire kit as planned. At least where it is shown on any kit box. After all, it is your railroad. It will be nice to see what you come up with.

I temporally held the sides together with a spring clip, and spot glued the two pieces together at the top of the window area, and bottom of the door seam. After that dried, I ran glue up the insides of the two pieces making them one piece permanent Railcar Critter sides.
The two front grill sections were then glued to the sides, making up the shell in its now rough start form. Sanding, filing and spot filling will take place at a later time. Next will be seeing how much I have to cut back on the motor frame, to re-size it to fit inside the shell.

Thanks Larry. I'm hoping That it will run and look as cool as the Backwoods miniatures model. Maybe you can help out here with that color.
Any idea what color their car is.

That is a cool car. You could call it "Coming and Going"!

Louis,

Very cool vehicle! Call it "Politics," and put the "F" on both ends just because you can....

Hi guys.

Looks like a nice project, Bob. It will be interested to see this kit built up to like new.

Louis - nice progress on your push-me-pull-you car.

I thought I had better put a photo or two of my progress up.

Photo showing the matt board shell coming together.


Photo showing the stucco walls with openings and additions masked and the Reeves course texture gel applied with a blade.


Photo showing the second coat which was stippled on with a brush. All coats were sanded with 120 grit sandpaper.


More soon, cheers, Mark.

Louis,

Looking good. Paying particular attention to your build.

The rest of the participants have some interesting projects going. Time I do a little sketch of my project.

Nice stucco effect, Mark.

I've painted and wainscotted my interior walls. I'm not doing a full interior, just enough to look convincing when viewed through the windows. For that reason, I also did the corner braces to get them to blend into the walls.



Cheers,
Jeff.

Any one out there have a clue as to what color this is? I'm thinking of going with this color for mine as well.
