Re: Modeling possibilities?

About three years ago Garrett Rea of Nashville intimated that resin kits based on the NC&StL cars would be forthcoming.? As I understood things then, the project was at the stage of measuring a surviving car body.? I have not heard anything about the project since then.? He told me that the 20000-21179 series had the Hutchins ends, while the 21180-21230 had Murphy ends.? Both series were NC&StL class XM-32.

Subject: [STMFC] Modeling possibilities?

I have some photos of four cars I'd like to model, but am not familiar
enough with what's available in model form to decide what to use as a
basis for models of these cars.

The cars in question are:

CSS&SB 1266 (13 panel steel gon),
PMcK&Y 91918 (Lot 442-G, steel gon),
NC%StL 20000-21399 (steel rebuilt 36' boxcar),
FEC 13001-13030 (33' IL steel hopper).

Any suggestions as to what to use as a basis for modeling these would be
