Nice a detailed wood interior. Are you going to stain and varnish it?

Thanks!

Some of it is already pre-painted and I'm going to go for a cherry/mahogany interior. Got some bottles of Polly Scale colors that I think will get me there.

Got all of the interior together; just have to assemble it and insert the floor unit.

Almost done - just need a set of smaller dry transfers in gold to finish this off. Used the original roof and the fit is less than perfect, but I'm going to leave it at that.

I really like it. That's some pretty neat carpeting on the floor

Nicely done interior, Martin. Have you thought about lighting it?

Thanks, gentlemen!

That carpeting really only covers the aisle and bit more so the wood is visible - just the camera angle. Carpeting material is just dollhouse wallpaper cut into a strip with a quck spray of contact adhesive and dropped into place.

Lighting it -- I did think about it. If I could do that by battery and lights in the roof, that would be perfect. Got any suggestions on that possibility, Goerge?

Thanks, Frederick! I'd almost forgotten how much fun it is to do an interiorr nearly board by board. Gets tedious until you see the light at the end of the tunnel and begin to believe it's the exit in sight.

One other detail I'd like to add are some period dressed passengers - not sure where to find those in 1/48 O scale. I think I can find 1/43 ones, but they may be a tight squeeze.

Martin, I've never put lighting in a passenger car. I was hoping you'd show us how it's done.

Hi Martin, that car is very nice. I especially like the interior, carpeting, seats, etc. Did the seats come with the kit or did you add them?
Very nice job, as usual.
regards, Vic B.

Seats are just Grandt Line - paint the parts and put them together. I imagine if there were seats in the original kit that they would have been wood bench forms covered with a velour paper to simulate upholstery or just painted.

Finally put the final lettering on this car after I got some smaller gold dry transfers. Would have really liked them to be slightly smaller to get the additional lettering that preceded the number, but it's probably just going to have to do as is...

I love the "watermelon" cars.... The "bare" wood box cars, ought to have been clear varnished and left alone just to show the work, and detail one just one of them!

NICE woodwork man, gotta love it!
