Re: Help with Sunshine Models kit 39.8

Jim, I think Martins box label is incorrect. I have that kit, I think as
my kits are packed but I noticed the same thing and oopend the box and in
my box at least is a 40ft car.

The on-line list of Martin's kits shows 39.8, a MP rebuilt Howe truss box
with diagonal panel roof and inverted Murphy end but doesn't state car
length. On ebay, kit 39.9 (which is the same as 39.8 except for decals) is
shown and that label says it's a 50-footer.

I need a 40-foot car to model a DCI box that came from the MP. What length
is kit 39.8? If it's a 50-footer, does Martin offer a 40-ft version?
