Double sheathed Cotton Belt Boxcars

Someone mentioned these cars recently. I wanted to let people know, especially those in California who are planning to attend the Prototype Modelers Seminars being done by Sunshine Models that ML will be introducing kits for both the original height cars and those that were rebuilt to 10 ft 2 in interior height. The tall rebuilds come in two versions depending on the end patch panels the modeler prefers. I built one of models Martin will have on display with the roof parts used on the ends. The kits come with lots of stenciling options and build up into very nice models that when placed next to a shorter car really stand out. These were of course the SSW signature boxcar.
