Re: Wood sheathing differential weathering reasons


Proto and Rail-scale-models missed the slope sheets. They were also wood down to the frame. See photo p. 242 Santa Fe Open Top Cars.

Regarding the car's interior, Rail Scale Models makes a laser-cut interior wood lining for the Proto 2000 War Emergency Hopper - part no. A205.  Bill Hanley told me about this item.

The metal grab irons are included in the P2K parts.  While a little oversized I’m ok on how they look. Not sure why I passed up on buying one of these models when they were first released but they look nice and it’s a very quick build. Only criticism is the interior where the boards are is completely smooth.
