Great recycling of the WS buildings. I have always liked the Victorian look of these buildings.

Really good adaptation of those kits. Nice work. Like the family connection to the shoe shop.

Current project is a Central Pacific powder car. CPRR built at least two 25' boxcars with iron sheathing to carry black powder, apart from the metal siding they were identical to all other 25' boxcars so I'm using the Bitter Creek kit as a base and making new sides out of styrene.


The laser cut wood sides were secured to the sheet plastic and the holes for grab irons and NBW castings drilled through



Then the side was measured out at 3-foot intervals to add Archer resin rivet decals. The frame was assembled per the kit instructions.




Stay tuned...

Interesting prototype and model. I’m looking forward to watching it go together.

Josh,

That is a pretty cool box car. Your build is coming along nicely.
I am using the Archer rivets on my camelback build. At first it was difficult, but I got the hang of it.
I like how they look.

Decals I drew up myself, same as all previous models I've posted. You can get the decal sets I design through Great Basin Car Shops though.

Nice work Josh. Don't think I've seen an explosives boxcar modelled before.
Interesting subject.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Not something you see every day.

Interesting car. If it went off it would give a new meaning to the term "blown off the tracks".
(sorry, I'll leave now)

Nice clean build.
