Once upon a time in Michigan...

So, a small update.

A couple of the BL2... the roof is in place, and (mostly) shaped. Progress, but still much to do!

My CN 1937 car. To match the running number, I reproduced the unique arrangement of the brake equipment - the triple valve, air reservoir and cylinder all on the same side of the car.

Attended to a few other minor details to properly Canadianise the car - added stirrups under the end ladders, and removed the poling pockets (both end stirrups and lack of poling pockets being distinctively Canadian features).

And here, a couple shots of the sides I've made for a Pere Marquette gon - still a long way to go on this one, but it's starting to take shape.

Oh, and too... the MAV locomotive we were talking about at the show, class 424? It's CSD class 465.0.

Can you reveal me, how you've made the rivets in plastic on the gondola sides? Is it a cast? I'm searching an easy solution for my own first freight car project. The american steam era cars had so many of those ... :sick:

No, it's not a casting; the rivets are decals: http://www.archertransfers.com/catSurfaceDetails.html

One of the coolest inventions in the hobby in a long time! :D

Decals, like a 2D print? But they appear so raised (3D) ... :?

I thought of etched brass stripes or sth. else.
