HP Products Caboose

Below is a trio of HP Products Cabeese. (Or Cabooses, depending on how you like to say it.)

The offset cupola is done by cutting the roof sections to allow for the cupola to be put on one side, as per Southern Pacific, Western Pacific, and Santa Fe prototype.

Once again, this shows the ease of customization that HP Products, and compatible makes allowed in their kits, versus modern plastic kits, where more tools and know how is needed to customize a kit car.

The car on the bottom used to belong to an addict of the Rock Island Railroad, as many of the cars in the lot that I bought from his children were custom painted for the Rock Island.
The brakeman in the cupola is a very nice touch.

Here are some photos of the HP Products Caboose in the box, parts laid out, and the instructions for the kit. The kit is missing most of the frame, but that should not be hard to rebuild.

Here is an "exploded" look at the parts in the HP #553 caboose, as a reference for those that need help determining if they have the complete kit or not:
