It is a wood sided car. Like a good quality house floor, the well-milled wood sheathing slats are tight fitting. In the years to come, the weaker flat-grained boards will come to light highlighting individual boards before the gaps increase, which in modeling we over exaggerate all the time.

Even though I’ve zoomed in quite a ways, could someone confirm my impression that this is a wood-sheathed car?


The door’s wood, but I am not completely sure that the car side is wood.
