  • VERY nice looking car. The joy to me of a wood kit is simply working with the wood...but you show that with time and patience it can rival plastic for results. I love it.

    • Hi Craig,

      Welcome aboard, this is really a nice place. Once you get the hang of it, we need you to post some photos of the great cars you build.

        • Thanks for your comments, Mike and Craig.

          I had the car evaluated, but only received 76 points. I was hit on Conformity because there was no prototype documentation. I was also hit on Scratch Build and Detail because the roof wasn't removable to see the interior. I don't think that would have helped since my detailing of the interior was only enough to see passengers through the windows. I now know that there's a big difference between a contest model and one that looks good on a layout. I'll do it right next time.

          • George,

            Ah yes, the conformity issue. I think that half my paper work is there to head off any questions on that. I got hit early on in structures with conformity. :erm:

            If your roof were removable, I would suggest re-submitting with some pictures to head off the conformity issue.

            At any rate, it still counts as one of your eight, and it gets the 'tough one' out of the way (passenger car). Remember, only four of the eight need to earn a Merit Award.

            Besides which, it is a great looking model!

            • Thanks, Bruce. The roof is glued on, but I think I'm be better prepared to handle the rest of the cars. I read your comments in the NMRA AP Cars Certificate "Support" Thread. http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/t...82&whichpage=6 I'll be following your advice.

              • George,

                Your comments here prompted me to post that info over there. Still, I feel like it was "Closing the bard door after the horse has bolted." :erm:
