Eric, great blog about the Accurail 36 ft boxcars. They are a wonderfully
needed product for the hobby.
Attached are photos of the bash we did for the Winston Salem NC RPM in
October. We are deeply indebted to Greg Martin and Schuyler Larrabee for
their leadership and inspiration with the Shake 'N Take series of kit
bashing at Cocoa FL RPM.
Thanks to many helpers, Ray Breyer included we put together a Southern RR
Ventilated boxcar bash. Dr. Dave Campbell did the resin ends and doors and
Dr. Dave Bott did the custom decals and Accurail helped with the undec No
1800 version we used as a starting point. We can't thank Accurail enough
for their support. I bashed the car and did a bash clinic at them meet. I
am attaching some poorly taken photos (my bad) that I took of the partial
and finished product. By the way if anyone wants to purchase the decals
and resin parts they will be available from Dr. Campbell for a while for
$12.00 a set(both included). Modelers can purchase the Accurail undec No.
1800 from Accurail. People can email me and I will send them Dr.
Campbell's address.
Bottom line is; building is FUN and bashing may be even more fun.
