According to the Abacus Modelworks website, they have an MDT M4 ice reefer coming to their line. Scroll down to kit 1014.x on this page for a simple listing:

No additional details are currently available. Possibly someone from Abacus Modelworks would make a comment on this steam era freight car model.

I realize we all have opinions about the obvious holes in the types

and as the new MDT book will help underscore and document the
numerous possibilities, the largest class of Wood Sheathed MDT
reefers built with DS ends and fishbelly u/f begs to be offered.
Maybe there are some resinators lurking that will do this, although I
think it is the kind of thing that could be justified in styrene too.

I'm just say'in.
