Hi all

I inished this kit up recently. Dont have a layout yet so no name boards etc. Ill get to that someday.

Fellow forum member Dave Mason(Mabloodhound) manufactures these fantastic kits. I used Boulder Valley Trucks on the car. No affiliation to either manufacturer, just a really happy customer.

Let me know what you think. Its not perfect, but as a second rolling stock build Im very happy.

Nice job. I need to get one of these kits.
Mike Engler Posted - 09/20/2013 : 11:17:48 PM
Wes- The construction and the weathering are first rate. Makes me want to ditch these structures and dioramas for awhile and do rolling stock. Great job!
Brian Rasmussen Posted - 09/20/2013 : 07:38:44 AM
I like the color.
What is it?
Weathering is great, what is your technique?

ironflyer Posted - 09/17/2013 : 11:36:28 PM
Really nice looking work Wes!
wesleybeks Posted - 09/17/2013 : 4:30:32 PM
Thanks for the comments guys.

Karl id love to see what you would do with one of these kits.
UKGuy Posted - 09/17/2013 : 4:13:49 PM
Excellent work Wes, really nice modeling, construction, colour and weathering all look great.
You did a great job weathering the trucks, I need several sets for my log cars so I'll be contacting Dallas shortly.

Looks to be a good looking kit, may have to investigate the line further.

Jeff, all of the freight cars use the same frame and they are a scale 22' long, 6'6" wide and 7" high less trucks and couplers. The Hopper car is slightly larger as are the passenger cars.
jschumaker Posted - 09/17/2013 : 2:51:46 PM
Nice work. What are the dimensions of the car?

Jeff S.
BigLars Posted - 09/17/2013 : 2:10:56 PM
Nice job on the car, great color choices. It is a nice looking kit.
wesleybeks Posted - 09/17/2013 : 10:51:42 AM
Thanks buddy
Carl B Posted - 09/17/2013 : 06:40:46 AM
Nice job Wes!
wesleybeks Posted - 09/17/2013 : 06:08:24 AM
Thanks for the feedback guys. Appreciate it.

Bryan your idea is a great one. May just try it out.
mabloodhound Posted - 09/16/2013 : 4:31:23 PM
Wes, that came out real nice. I like the door runners you added. Sure gives a chance to have operating doors.
Nice color too. Colorado & Southern look, with excellent fading.
brownbr Posted - 09/16/2013 : 3:54:50 PM
Nice construction and weathering. something that might look good on the inside is some hay/debris brushed up into the corners. With the open framing this should be visible and make a very interesting detail.

Looks very good.
