Subject: [RealSTMFC] Details On The Road
Seems I get more modeling done in hotel rooms than at home. One of the easiest projects on the road is adding small details, with a few parts and minimal tools. The new door handles on this BLI NYC boxcar are a perfect example, with the
molded handles replaced with flattened .008 brass rod. It's a trifle "fiddley" as the flattened brass is quite delicate, but it makes for a lovely detail. I did not use phosphor bronze as the harder wire was more resistant to being "squashed."
