Not yet posted. But if you come up with anything, I'll be glad to add it.
Since this is still in its preliminary, I'm concentrating on just listing
all the kits, and trying to find basic information, such as car number(s) on
the model and the paint scheme, so I can give some basic guidelines. But
over time, I expect this to become a sort of bulletin board with people
weighing in with their opinions, knowledge, ideas on modifying kits to make
them more accurate, and kitbashing ideas. - John

Does anyone know of a resource that points out the differences between
early steel reefers of the major refrigerator lines? What I am trying to
determine is, using the PFE's R-40-10 through R-40-25 series as a
(or, in other words, using the Intermountain HO kits as a baseline), what
other cars can one model and with what parts. For example, what would
have to do to make one of the Intermountain kits into a prototypically
accurate version of the MDT reefers built in 1947-8? or an IC steel
Ted, I'm not aware of any article or other resource that compiles this
information, though you might want to see if John Nehrich has posted
something on the Renssalaer RR web site. I have this information for some
cars, e.g. early IC and ART clones of the R-40-10s, and could derive a lot
more from my photo collection if I had time. Alternatively, I could scan
some of the photos and YOU could pore over them!
