If it isn't the ugliest it certainly is one of the most un-standard: four panels on each side of the door (of unequal size), odd roof with indented end panels, 10-rung side ladders, odd and deep side sills. OK, the doors are standard (maybe).

I love the B-5 too, although I hesitate to call it the most homely. There
are plenty of candidates for that title! :-D

Photos shows the B-5's with at least FIVE different trucks

1. Buckeye, that Pierre mentioned (date 1956)
2. Allied Full Cushion (1951)
3. National Type B (date 1959)
4. AAR trucks - no spring plank, widely spaced two front springs (1942 builder, etc)
5. AAR trucks - no spring plank, three front springs (1941 builder)

Like Bill, I am excited and glad and N&W B-5 boxcar is being done....but I think it is beautiful, not homely! LOL!  The other kits look great as well.  Thanks for doing all of these cars.
