I can now.
While waiting for the paint to cure on a quintet of SFRD reefers, I decided to work on a personal project.
The DT&I 41'-6" Mill gon. In fact 6 of them. Cause nothing succeeds like excess.
Actually, a significant number of these gons were in autoframe service and no doubt many would have traversed the Cayuga Sub, on the way to the factories in NY state, so half a dozen doesn't seem outrageous to me.
This model was a "Shake and Take" project from the Cocoa Beach RPM in 2010. It takes me time to catch up sometimes. The original project called for chopping up an Athearn gon and creating drop door ends. Most of that work has been solved by Frank Hodina and Tom Madden. Frank did the pattern using a Proto 2000 gon and Tom cast up a limited number of car bodies. I believe he's sold out of these now.
Right now the tedious part is bending all the grabs, 96 in total. Of which 72 are drop grabs. I'm having to bend them because I don't have any 24" grabs here and I don't want to wait for them to be delivered. So it really is my own fault.
With any luck I'll be cobbling up the loading frames for the car frames tomorrow.
