Well done, Martin. Even a flat car looks complex when you model all the details.

My very 1st AP merit award was for a flat car that oddly enough was also my very first entry into having a car judged,

Thatís true for me as well although I probably just squeaked through. Flat cars are generally not complex enough to get the points required. My subsequent models were much more work.

For the gondola, the side are not going to be removable; The prefabbed sides already have the stakes attached, so those will be used to attach the sides to the car. Then I'll drop the stake pockets over them into place.

SMartin,

There is something about flat cars that lets our railroad imagination go wild. A sure fire favorite of mine, and the brass brake gear cost is well spent in your hands.
