Re: [Non-DoD Source] Re: [RealSTMFC] inexpensive kit-bash

Gatwood, Elden J SAD



My kit, build, which was cruelly stolen, but originally gifted to me by Ed Hawkins, had decals.  Given the commentary on how flawed that kit was, and the challenges of assembling that kit, I am amazed you also put that SOB together.


Given the wanderings of these “Steel Road” box cars in tin plate, steel sheet, etc., I m astounded more people have not got onboard the necessity of having these cars and others on their roads.


Great job!

Thanks for the kind words Elden.  The EJ&E boxcar is indeed an ancient Sunshine #11.1.  I love the way it looks next to the larger boxcars that dominate most 1950s layouts.  I think the kit came without decals, so I used the Tichy.
