Hi Clark,
 
Looks great.
 
Which series Accurail wood reefer kit does one need for the core?
 
Thanks for posting your pics.

Finished fooling around with the reefer mini-kit. It's now painted with Floquil colors awaiting gloss before decaling. All my extra fishing line is in a chest with a microwave setting on it. Anybody want a free microwave ?  :  )) We still have two rods rigged for drop shoting, so I cut the 6 lb test mono drops off and used them for the truss rods.

BAR 2903

Bob Chaparro
 

A photo from the BAR Facebook group.

Caption: "BAR reefer #2903 ex BAR #10113 at Millinocket May 20, 1951. I believe this rebuild was done in the fall of 1950. Wooden sided, stem winder in red, white and blue and lettered 'State of Maine Potatoes'. From the collection of Barney Laing."

I honestly can't tell if this is a reefer or a plug door boxcar. I also don't see three different colors on the car side.

One person commented only two BAR reefers appeared in this color scheme.

Does anyone know more about this car?

Thanks.

Re: Models For Sale

Thanks to all who looked at the steam-era models for sale, and delighted that many of you found something of interest.  As I am "culling the herd," I will be back again soon with other models, decals, and a few undecs.  Thanks again.

    It's probably a better gas to use but think refills cost more.  I've often heard of using nitrogen to put in the top of paint bottles.

Re: using bottled nitrogen for air brush painting

Andy I used Nitrogen when I first started painting.  It was great but it became inconvenient to drive across town when the bottle was empty and then go back a day or two later to pick it up.  Nitrogen was highly recommended at that time.

I was gifted a full 20 pound bottle of Nitrogen recently. It was last hydro tested in  2015. It has the dual gauge type of regulator, though unlike my CO2 regulators, the low pressure gauge is for 300 psi. At a minimum, I will need to replace that dial gauge for a lower pressure one.

My question, is Nitrogen useful for air brushing? I have nothing but good things to say about bottled CO2, and I am asking if Nitrogen will work as well.

I wish these ends were still available.  Does anyone have an extra set they don't need and are willing to part with?

Steve a Minnesota friend sent me an email asking the same question as you are as he had the same experience - wrong magazine and no subscription. He checked and found the magazine label had his correct subscription information. Correct label on the wrong magazine.

I told him that did not happen here as I have a November issue.
