These lead alloy panels were then glued to a solid wood block. The
resulting car requires two hands to lift it onto the track ;-)

Subject: [STMFC] Red Ball wagon top kit

The original Red Ball wagon top box car kit required the assembler
to bend about 2 dozen flat metal panels into the characteristic
wagon top pattern. not likely this will be released as is in plastic.

The detailing (rivets etc.) could be described as "coarse".
