The stirrups were those supplied in the kit. To me, the look like Tichy or Detail Associates. They are made of Delrin.

Very nice build, Jim. I like what you’ve done with the interior! May I ask what you used for stirrup steps?
I have just completed a build of F&C kit # 6761, B&O 9 Panel Hopper. This kit has a one piece body casting, so it was not a particularly difficult build, for a hopper. I followed the kit instructions in building the car and fitted it with TMW Andrews trucks and Kadee code 88 wheelsets. Paint is Scalecoat Engine Black and Testor's Dullcoat. Weathering is a thinned coat of Scalecoat Flat Grime #1 followed with various Pan Pastel colors. Decals are the original F&C - Not entirely satisfactory.
