Re: Stan's long stock car

There isn't yet but soon will be if a certain unnamed keeper of the Sunshine
website gets off his butt and gets busy. That unnamed person has photos of
all Stan's built up kits and a web page partially done.

I picked up one of Stan Rydarowicz's new 50' Mathers stock cars at
Naperville. I'm about finished with assembly.

The kit is basically a P2K stock car with styrene and resin parts for the
doors and center extension of the frame.

All parts needed for assembly are included. The instructions made me
laugh because they are written just like Stan talks. He did not included
several of the assembly steps, so like most small maker kits, you're on your
own. He does provide some poor photocopies of the constructed model. I was
impressed by the thought Stan put into this model.

This is a time consuming kit. Heck, the P2K kit is time consuming alone.
There is no good photo of a completed model or prototype. The decals
included do have a drawing of the cars. A friend supplied photos of the
prototype which were quite helpful.

Next time I talk to Stan I'll recommend he amends his instructions to
make each step clearer to the builder.

The kit is priced at $35. These cars were built in the early 60s, but are
so cool I had to have one!

Stan sells an extensive line of resin supplemented kits including several
modified reefers.
