    Those rivets do not count against you. They are part of the scratchbuilding.

    Yup! They are a credit! Lots of work to install them....

    Also part of Construction, Detail, and if in correct placement and style, also goes in Conformity.

    • why don't you try the Archer decal rivets, they go on a lot faster and after painting, no one can tell.

      • Paint versus install floor boards - quandary

        I have the 4 sides of my stock car assembled excluding ladders, b-end platform, stirrups etc. I'm curious as to whether I should install the unstained floor boards and then proceed with priming and painting the sides and thus the floor boards. Or would it be better to prime and paint the sides as much as I have them assembled and then install stained floor boards.

        thanks

          Far easier to paint sides (and ends) prior to assembling them to the car body and so you can do the interior. Stained floor boards in advance and then installed prior to the sides and ends should make for a tidier job.

          • It.s great to see this fine forum back up and running, although it was very difficult to find. I am nearing the completion of my PRR 128079 Stock car which I've been working on for way to long. I just need to install the grab irons and the stirrup on one end of the car and then begin the weathering and decalling work. Possibly by the end of the month I should be done.

            • Some work still to be done is fixing links between threads. I've started on mine but many of the key threads were made by Administrators.

              I've made no progress on the Cars AP since painting my brass PRR flat.

              • Has anybody who has built a stock cars for the Cars Certificate attempted to simulate animal pee/urine that ran down the sides of the stock car just below the floor boards? If so I'd be interested in reading what you did. Thanks
