Resin Car Works has released a mini-kit to transform a plastic model into a classic Fruit Growers Express truss rod reefer. This is the mini-kit that was gifted at the recent RPM Chicagoland meet.
Update from Frank
I had Monday off so I thought I’d finish up a couple projects for upcoming Resin Car Works releases. Then I got a little carried away decaling cars that had been sitting around.
Besides all the newly decaled cars, you might notice a few projects in the upper right corner. Yup, that’s the SOO 50-foot auto box. Plus a couple of other fun projects, a C&IM coal gon and the side for a PM/C&O steel auto car. Hmmm, what will become of these?
What’s on your workbench?
I’m recovering from a busy RPM Chicagoland weekend in Lisle, IL. The days seemed to blur right by like a speeding train. I took some notes to offer a summary. If you haven’t attended a railroad prototype modeler (RPM) meet, I encourage you to take action and attend a meet near you. The RPM event calendar is updated frequently with dates and links to these events around the country.
