Re: News from Steve Funaro on Wabash Automobile Box and Stock Cars

That is indeed great news for modelers if those Wabash SS box cars will
be reworked from their original incarnation. The original F&C Wabash
Automobile box cars were characterized by many of the deficiencies of
early resin offerings from F&C and some others. It sounds like they are
doing additional versions, and the stock car is definitely a pleasant
surprise. I look forward to seeing their efforts.
The Wabash 13000 series 41'6" War Emergency gon model from F&C is indeed
pretty nice. The castings are not quite in the same league as
comparable offerings from Westerfield or Sunshine, but the kit assembles
into a very nice model of a distinctive car. I would highly recommend
augmenting/replacing the decals with the pieces from the Mark Vaughan
Wabash hopper car set, as some of the lettering dimensions/shapes leave
a bit to be desired in the F&C set.
