Another winner in the making.

Perhaps you could enlighten me on the purpose of the small window. Access to a lantern?


No good answer on that detail - was there when I got it and I just cleaned it up a bit. I'm going with it being the light into the throne reading room....

Looking at the inside of the body shell, it appears that the original kit provided an option to put this window on either side or both.

Bit of a fast forward...







Going to leave the roof removable to make an interior possible in the future.

Another beaut, Martin.

An interior at this scale would be impressive.

On to the next and last from the tray full of partially built cabooses.....

Just a bit, Mike.

I've built 2-3 transfer cabooses over the years and at least 1 bay window caboose. I expect this one to be fun...... Say no more!
