Re: Wegman (?) PFE/ART resin kit


Amazing what goes on when you take a few day break. Terry was and is, of course, a PFE fan and I followd his advice on building quite a few but as a MP modeler bemoned the lack of ART models. We obtained one of Martin's ART wood side kits (already discontinued) and Terry corrected a few details and made it into a one piece body as reported and I did supplemental decals on the ALPS as Andy indicated.

I am surprised that Gerald Glow hasn't responded, since he was instrumental with the development of this car, and he did the decals with his ALPS printer.

Terry and Gerald thought that the ART reefer from Sunshine could use some improvements, and Terry proceeded to assemble a better body and then made a complex acrylic mold box to allow pouring one-piece castings. Terry did about 50 of these cars, and I know for an absolute fact that Terry will not be making any more-EVER (He has all he wants)! Terry is immersed in bringing his tri-color LED equipped US&S H2 searchlight signals to market and isn't entertaining any ideas of other projects, especially at this time.

Thanks Jim,

I have a couple in the closet to look at when I get home. However, those sure are not?PFE/ART models! So I guess, the question still lingers. What kit are we taliking about Jerry?

Pierre, I had the same memory. I checked my all-time list and found kits
34.14 & 34.15, BREX & WFEX reefers listed as Quick-Kits. One piece sides and
ends is close enough to a "one piece" body for me.
