Are there published plans for a AAR twin hooper?   I would like to build one in 1.5 in scale.

Thanks for all replies so far.

This is getting out of hand. The car in the photos is a USRA design (Although built after the USRA was disbanded and the railroads returned to their owners). Drawings for the USRA car can be found in the Car Builder's Cyclopedias from WWI until 1940, and have been redrawn and published in MR ages ago, and Mainline Modeler more recently.

The various AAR standard hoppers were all offset side designs. Drawings can be found in the same sources.
