does anyone have cutouts for the roof and floors of the printed sides that are seen on ebay? i bought some 50 foot printed sides and now need floors and roofs. i want to make resin cast molds to make it easer in the future.

Traditionally these sides were glued to a wooden box with cast ends supplied and generally low detail. Elmer from Possum Valley Models upgraded these somewhat and produces ends doors and roofs all in resin which are glued to the wooden box. I would ask him if he as any 50 foot carcasses for sale as his kits are the same except for resin sides as opposed to the printed ones
Hope this helps

I bought a number of those sides, and I find using roof panels made out of wood is not too hard, and matches the sides quite nicely. I have given producing car sides for our own roads a bit of thought as well.
