Re: interesting techique


Some roads (I know MP did) converted old boxcars into pulpwood flats
so the 2 sided detail on the ends would be critical for the right
look. Doors would be another thing if modeling them open.

I was reading an issue of Fine Scale Modeler and there was an

castings out of bismith and then had them plated. Afterwards, he

resulting plated metal shapes.

I thought this might be a useful techique for freight car
modeling. How about using it to make
replacement pressed steel car ends? Anyone have any other ideas?
