Bob,

 

Your work is top drawer as always.  Your jig for making the end bulkheads is interesting.  Can you share from what the job is constructed?  We all know that assembling styrene components in a styrene jig usually doesn’t go well.

Unique among L&N’s woodracks were the #20100-20199 “shorties” – 36-footers with inset bulkheads, rebuilt in 1943 from ventilated boxcars. The model was scratchbuilt from styrene, with the usual freight car detail additions.
