Re: PRR & NYC double door boxcar models?

Bowser. To me they have shortcomings in the underframe and cast on details but with a little work they are acceptable.  Now a double door X31a I would use Rapido but X31, X31b, X31c, X31d, and x31f, you can start with bowser. 

From the X32 and X33 bowser is the only plastic starting point. 

Oh and most bowsers need new paint.  Lee used a west rd shape of FCC for a while and the lettering was off.

Brian, I don’t know enough about the Bowser cars to have an opinion. What is yours?

Plastic. Maybe, depending on your opinion of the bowser PRR x31, x32, and x33 family of cars.

Hi, are there any good (accurate) plastic models of 50’ or 40’ double door boxcars (automobile cars)  for the PRR and the NYC?

I’ll appreciate any and all advice.

Thanks
