Re: New Decal Available

Sunshine kit # 44.4 is for the earlier car (1944) with 5/5 ends. But I think in all
other respects it is very similar to the 1949 cars (46300-46449) built by Mount
Vernon with 4/4 ends.

The 1944 cars had 14'6" door openings. The 1949 cars had 15'0" openings.

So a kitbash is required, but it's definitely one of the easier kitbashes. You could
start with the old C&BT double door bodies, or a Branchline body which has the
correct panel widths. You'll need Archer rivets too. Happy modeling! :-)
