I like my job.

One of the great things about being a custom builder is that I get to work in scales and with products and kits I wouldn't otherwise get to play with.
Today I finished up a Chooch ATSF Bx-56 boxcar kit. Proto48 is something to behold. Such detail!
And the workmanship that can go into these cars!
Jim Zwernneman did the kit design and pattern work for this kit and he really knocked this one out of the park. I've built this car in HO from a Sunshine kit, but this O scale behemoth really shows the uniqueness of this car design. I am in awe of Jim's incredible attention to detail.
It is indeed a pleasure to work with products this well designed.

Sunshine did offer this model in HO scale. It shows up on Ebay from time to time,and Westerfield offers the single door version, Bx-3
