When production stopped he had plug door bodies already to go but the "overhanging" roof continued to be an issue. To me, the biggest problem was the roof sat too high. I don;t know if complete kits were provided for review or not. I do know they were not assembled.

I've wondered about this - the BODY and ENDS on his reefers were just fine.
It was the extremely poorly rendered roof that really spoils the model. If I
had seen only the body and ends I would have given them a thumbs up too. It's
a real shame because Dick cut bodies for several different SFRD reefers!
As for the SFRD reefers test shots were provided to ATSF experts who "okayed" the model and then tossed Dick under the bus when they were released.
