Jerry Hamsmith has been busy with a resin kit group build and sent a progress summary. Here’s part one.
Recently, a group of fellow modelers (Ed Rethwisch, Chris Vanko, Bob Hanmer, Allen DeBraal, Brad Hanner, and myself) successfully completed a build of the newly released Resin Car Works Kit 8.05, a Missouri Pacific 1942 ACF boxcar. This series of posts will follow along with the build and describe our techniques. We hope this encourages modelers to build any resin kit and, specifically, to aid in building this RCW kit.
The Resin Car Works minions are kicking off the New Year with a new HO scale kit! The Missouri Pacific added 350 new AC&F-built steel box cars in 1942. Cars were lettered for the MP as well as subsidiaries I-GN and StLB&M.
Blog contributor Charlie Duckworth added a number of fine freight car models to his HO scale fleet this past summer. He started posting progress details to the ResinFreightCarBuilders discussion list on Groups.io in early July. Here are a few of Charlie’s posts.
Wondering what the group is working on? Too hot in Omaha to do much other than hang out in a cool basement.
