Workbench Wednesday

Bill Welch sent a recent update with these photos. Here’s the scoop from Bill.

I am going to really try to not start any new models this year until I finish several of the many projects I have underway. Here is a step toward completing a Savannah & Atlanta ex-FEC rebuilt boxcar using styrene and Westerfield parts.

The model will be completed with one door open to reveal the wood interior. The floor is individual boards that have been distressed. PanPastels and colored pencils will be used to age the interior.

Semi-Scale Coupler Boxes

Resin Car Works announces a new part! These are cast resin, semi-scale coupler boxes designed to work with the Kadee #158 whisker semi-scale coupler. These HO scale parts can be used to upgrade your freight car models. These are the same coupler boxes that were included in the 2017 RPM Chicagoland gift that folks have been asking about.
