Todays project! #128512;
I had a "kit" for a D.S.P & P reefer.
Unfortunately the eBay seller had picked out almost all wood and most hardware....
I found the original drawings online and built it from scratch!
The only thing from the kit is the hinges, door lock and footsteps.
The rest is wood, plasticard, Grandt line and some Tichy.

Do you have any history information on this car? What kind of reefer is it? Tiffany patent?

So, Now it's almost finished...
At least I got the paint and decals on.
I found some Grandt line trucks that I'm using on this one.






Now some very light weathering and installing the couplers.

It looks Great Michael. It's similar to the one I scratch-bashed last year into a WP&Y reefer.
