I have to admire them for not "gouging" on the prices.

Wow.

I missed it - A very nice assortment at very reasonable prices! I'll bet they didn't last long. :-)

The Westerfield kits, nice as they are, represent the original configuration and the 10'6 IH raised roof (12" extension).  There is no represntation of the approximately 1000 Bx-11s and 39 Bx-12s that received the 6" extensions to 10' IH.  Those missing cars are needed.

Re: Defect Card Holders

Scott, there is a defect card on each side of the X29D rebuilds, to the left of the door. So you'll
see them in photos of the L left and R right sides (w respect to brakewheel), but always to the left
of the door.

I think - (I could be mistaken) - that Detail Associates 6213 included a tiny tack board like that.
I'm pretty sure someone made one in HO...

Scott,
For 40’ steel box cars, starting in the mid-to-late 1930s Defect Card Holders of the various steel specialty types (Apex, Motor Wheel T-Z, Cheeper, Real, and a few others less common) were most-often located on the right side of the car to either the bolster to side sill connection (i.e., “bolster tab”) or to the left of the door on the side sill door reinforcement between the crossbearer and crosstie. 
 
For 50’ box & auto cars the positioning was typically similar but with a wider range of locations for door reinforcements deeper and/or continuously longer.
 
However, there were exceptions in which the Defect Card Holder was attached to the left side of the car or a location unable to be easily detected on either side of the car, perhaps mounted “out of view” to the back side of the door reinforcement. 
 
Other types of cars such as open and covered hoppers often had the Defect Card Holder attached to the lower left corner of the slope sheet support just above the “B” end bolster.
 
My question to you is “what are you using for the Defect Card Holder?”, as each one had its own distinctive shape.
 
Previous to the steel specialty makes, defect cards were attached to a small piece of wood or to the side itself if made of wood.

Rapido offers undec kits as well, which is where this part of the thread started. ?
Sometimes.

Some of their freight cars have kits listed as an order option, some
list a fully assembled model that is either unpainted or painted a
solid colour (like the Procor 5820).

They have in the past stated that undecorated kits can be ordered with
a minimum order of 6(?) units so contacting them if they don't have
kits listed can also be an option (if you don't want 6, then try to
arrange a group order like someone recently was doing for a Rapido
item on an online forum).

But don't expect kits to be available as a stock item, you will really
need to pre-order (and this seems to be true even for resin kits with
some of late selling out quick or being done only to order).


Re: Defect Card Holders

I am from post PRR, but when I had to fill out a defect card we filled out 3 of them. One went in/on each of the 2 defect card holders, one on each side on opposite ends of the car and the other one you kept and put in the office for record keeping. There are 2 defect card holders per car, one on the right side by #1 truck and on the left side by #2 truck.

Re: Photo: ERDX/A&P Tea Co. Reefer 12000

According to Roger Hinman's MDT book, there were some 40' MDT reefers equipped with brine tanks and meat rails for meat service.

This looks quite similar to the MDT 6000 series with square corners, hopefully it can be kitbashed from Sunshine kits of the much less common 8000 series reefer.

MDT built these cars in 1932. They were part of series 712-723 and were equipped with meat rails.

Notice the latch bars holding open the hatch covers. Not a common feature of meat reefers, which did not use ventilation. Perhaps these were cars designed for multiple uses.

ERDX reporting mark assigned to Eastern Refrigerator Despatch/Merchants Despatch Transportation Co.

I noticed this reefer had brine refrigerator tanks and latch bars to allow for ventilation. I was under the impression that brine refrigerator tanks were typical of meat reefers, which did not use ventilation. Or perhaps this is a car designed for multiple uses.

Anyone?

Re: more glue questions

I'll tell you what it lacks, tack.
I thought tacky glue would remain tacky after it dried, like the glue on scotch tape.
No such luck though and it's slow to dry like all water-based adhesives.

And in many cases, the "lower left corner" defect card holder was just a very small tack board. I think
the tube style ended up being the most popular (i.e. cheapest) and the cards (written on stiff paper) when
rolled up and stuck in the tube stayed reasonably clean, dry and secure.
