Steve. When is your reefer clinic? I want to be there for that

It is nice that the ends and sides are separate. The MDC plastic is quite soft. Also, the Accurail 36’ underframe fits in well in lieu of the cast one.
I have used a couple of these for Swift cars for a clinic later this month at Collinsville.
Just catching up with all the responses. Appreciate the Branchline history lesson!
Per request, here are photos of the kit (I had already stripped the vintage billboard paint from the carbody). The diecast underbody definitely has a MDC look.
I'll have to dig out Richard H's RMJ article -- sounds like just what I need to do prototype justice to the kit.
