CNR 8 Hatch Reefers

These 3 cars just got their flat coat this morning. I can now hand them off to Trevor. He will apply real wood running boards and weathering. His choice.
In the end these S scale models from MLW Services  rate an "OK". I haven't worked this hard and long on a resin kit in quite some time. But the potential is there. The etched components are first rate. The extensive instructions demonstrate a desire to help the modeler great a quality model.
There are just some speed bumps in the kit that need cleaning up. I have been told by the business owner that improvements and changes with  the castings are underway. Part of the challenge was that I had the "honour" of getting some of the first run casting sets.
These are going to look great in a layout setting. The prototype is unique and striking. I'm very much looking forward to switching them on Trevor's layout soon.

Great work again, Pierre. These will add some visual variety to the fleet.
