Very nice rehab Martin. I like it. Looks good.

Thanks! It was touch & go on some bits, but I managed to get this one up to "acceptable" and ready to letter. Still has what I believe to be a sash weight in it, [:-bigeyes]

May be best sitting on a siding in a scenery capacity at the end of the day.....

Finishing up that PRR covered hopper now.

Thanks, Bruce!

I'm going to take a break from the salvage yard exercise for a bit to...........build a kit, [:-bigeyes][:-bigeyes][:-bigeyes]

I'll start a new thread for this one......in a few days. The things you find in a mis-labeled box on the floor on top of a stack of stuff next to the radial saw! Nudge, nudge. Say no more!

Martin, I'm just catching up on your thread and you are doing some beautiful work! I'd venture to say many modelers would like at some of these kits and figure they weren't worth salvaging, but you proved them wrong! Very nice.

Thank you, gentlemen!

Should be wrapping up the decals on this car today.

Yes Mark, many walk right by the "junk", but I've found that if the "bones" are good that I usually make something that's pretty serviceable and not with a large investment, but with a pretty good return on fun!

Been a busy end of the year scramble to get some restoration/rebuilding/finishing projects out of the queue, out of hte shop, and either into the "keeper" pile or into the "4 sale" tubs.

This car started out as...
