Thanks, Mike!

These are actually very nice kits to build and while a bit delicate and very light, they can be ungraded and re-detailed to be very nice looking cars.

Now I need to get back to my stack of wood cars that need finishing or restoring.

Thanks all!

I am particularly pleased that the Scale Coat MoW paint matched up so well with the PRR gray.

I'm also relieved that my limited compentency with my air brush managed to get this done.

One of my basic air brushes bit the dust, but that's a small loss after many decades of use (or disuse...).

Next time I'm out and about at a show or meet I'll have to see if I can score another el cheapo air brush

Martin, Very nice job!

A friend of mine used to call the Harbor Freight airbrush the "disposable" airbrush, as the cost was under $5, I think. For the price of a latte' or mocha you too can afford to play with and potentially destroy an airbrush. Or, you may just discover a hidden talent!

Speaking of, I have some paint to mix.

Got the next project for my column in the magazine completed so I have both a bit of time and empty bench space. Next up out of the pile on the floor in a project box is this unfinished shell - looks to be an old Main Line kit, but all I have is what you see....which is great since now it can be whatever I want it to become now.







Not badly assembled but the roof has a few splits and one of the floor braces is broken - dab of Carpenter's glue remedies all of that.

That end grain on the ends has got to go, too. Time to dig out all of the parts to take this car to its next incarnation and get to work!
