Thanks, Mike!

Not sure what the next MoW car project will be that I can share here - I have one that's a commission that I'd like to publish.

Have to look into and ponder the stacked pile of possibilities ,

I just finished off a Simpson Gon kit. That kit was basically the wood to build the car and nothing more - on your own for details and all the rest.

Then stumbled across a photo of a MoW car that I thought looked very approachable by building / bashing another Simpson Gon kit. Lacking that kit, I'll just start from scratch and my own stock of wood.

Martin,

This seems to be about as far as some of your salvage jobs were taken before they fell in your hands.

Roughing out some tool/supply boxes to fit in each end of the car. That's a hunk of 1/3" thick lead you can see in the one box. Same in the other box to give this car a little heft,

I'll second what Bruce said on the tool boxes. Did you make the domes on the barrels?

Yup! Brass tubing, some box stock, and some scrap sheet stock all soldered up. Got hinges for them to add.

Martin,

Nice job on the tanks and toolboxes. I look forward to every step.
