    Yes, that would get you down to the car bolsters, but it really should be a bit deeper than that......but maybe "good enough" for most folks. Not sure I have a steady enough hand for that even.

      The 'bits and bobs' look pretty good, Martin! :up:

          In any case, it looks real nice.

              Some bits on the top added....and started on the brake end.

                  Ok, this is done or as close to done to suit me...





                  Off to the next couple of quick projects.....minor touch-ups and small details to add sort of stuff. Got one of those Lionel Gla hoppers to convert and also re-letter for CVRR. Wondering about removing that paint - seems to be significant- you can feel the ridge/edge of it. I've read the EZ Lift-off with a Magic Eraser will work. We'll see.

                  Got an older Gloor Craft caboose to finish out - bits missing and details to add. Should be a good therapeutic exercise....

                      Thanks, George!

                      I almost picked up another one of these cars on Sat. while at the O scale meet in Indianapolis, but I managed to resist - real decider was a lack of decals.....although, I guess making something "creative" is not out of the realm of possibilities.......
