It was the fallout over the 1932 ARA box cars that caused Martin
to drop Funaro
as a caster (and master builder) - Frank Hodina's first models
for Martin then began
to appear, and they were of a higher order of quality. Martin's
own early castings (I
think the Mather stock cars may have been the first) were not
gray urethane castings.

the instructions were good enough that it still compares
well with my “modern” resin kit builds.

Expanding on the subject, does anyone
know of a list of the West Shore Line’s offerings? They
were of that same era, and also manufactured by F&C.

Thank you Tim. I was surprised to see
he had done a couple of gondolas. The boxcars on the list is
like seeing an old friend after several years. I built the
CP mini-box, the B&M and BAR Pratt truss cars and the
1932 ARA BAR, Norfolk Southern, CGW and an extra CGW kit and
Walther's decals to do the NdeM version. Bill Dulmaine did
an excellent job with his instruction, prototype history and
decals. Also built the PM and C&O 1930 series kits and
still have the NKP 1932 kit to build.
For NC&StL, Clinchfield, CofG 1932 cars I built the
Sunshine versions. I still a Sunshine 1932 CP kit to build.
