Well, it has been a while but I am going to start a new model. I'm not really started but
I am gathering materials and getting set up to start.

Here's the story - For many years I have admired an O scale (1/48) model produced by
Berkshire Valley Models. It is the very nice American Laundry Wagon and a horse. My model
will be basically the same model except I may make a small change or two, but not much. I
am working in 1/24 scale and as many of you know, my favorite building material is sheet
polystyrene. I also love the horse with a hat on.

I have talked via email with Rich at Berkshire Valley models and he gives his OK
and will most likely be following along too.

Here's a photo of the 1/48 scale kit from the kit instructions so you will know what I am shooting for.



Bob

PS: I was going to make a new build string but it was easier to tag along after my other posts.

Bob, it's wonderful to see you sharing your modelling with us again!
I look forward to seeing how this wagon comes out in the wash.

My thanks to all you guys for your comments, I hope I do not disappoint any of you.
Carl, I'll be watching for your new build too.

I have started laying out the parts for the two sides of the wagon, each consisting of two layers.
One a sort of blank and the other a layer of moldings. I hope to have a photo by tomorrow.

While working on this I have been thinking about the decal too.

Here are the four parts (2 for each side) of the main part of the wagon box. Forget the holes, I have
more to drill. They just help me to get inside each piece to remove material.
This is .030 styrene sheet material so the walls will be .060 thick when glued together.

Still working on those side pieces and I worked in making the decals.

I googled "American Eagle Emblem" and found dozens of the proper emblem so I picked the
one I liked best. I have tons of fonts on my computer as a result of making signs for my
models for years. A quick search found a font called "Alfredo" which turns out to be an
exact match.

Here's my decal and the kit decal together, quite a size difference.
