Done, done and done

The pilot model for the next kit from Yarmouth Model Works is done.
The kit features custom etched details, a new etched running board design and custom decals from Black Cat Publishing. Included in the kit will be Kato ASF A-3 trucks.
The side panels were carefully created to recreate the ripples that occur when sheet steel is welded. The effect is subtle but very much there.
The prototype was built in 12-48 by AC&F and was the first welded side boxcar purchased by the Wabash.
These kits will be on the website just as soon as we have some inventory. Stay tuned.

While I'm not 100% sure,no doubt they rolled on into the 70s.
