Re: Help with a SP box car

Hello Clark,
 
really nice looking model, no doubt, but please allow a question: -are you sure the brake rod orientation is correct? What I can see is an "ordinary" AB system, and the brake rods usually are oriented "diagonally" to each other, means the assembly at the B end is correct, but the brake rod at the A end would have to be placed to the other side of the lever.
Or am I missing something here?
 
Regards

I didn't have to leave town this morning so I finished....Thought I'd finished, just remembered the cut lever...The SP mini-kit, I'll add the uncoupling lever and paint next.
I'm also attaching a model I did the week before CCB. It's an old Sunshine "Unibody" kit for a KCS rebuilt box car. I was expecting a yellow casting flat kit. To my surprise I got a C&BT kit with a couple of resin castings....I used the two castings and the carbody, the rest is from my parts stash.
