What you see will be Yarmouth Model Works next kit.
The CPR 223950 plywood sheathed car. This was a wartime build, using 5/8" plywood in lieu of steel plate for side sheathing. The use of plywood saved over 2000 lbs in weight and retained the full interior width.
The panels were afixed through steel straps overlaying the side panels using a distinctive double row of rivets.
Aaron Gjermundson has faithfully recreated the look of this unique car in creating the patterns we'll be using.
The kit will feature the same kinds of details seen in our Wabash stock car. Laser cut running boards, Tahoe Model Works truck frames, Black Cat decals, photo-etched ladder stiles, stirrups and other details.
If all goes well, this kit may be ready to ship before Christmas.
Check in to the website to see when this kit will be ready.
