My favorite pattern maker

At least in O scale.
I just completed 2 of these stunning reefers from Chooch. The patterns were created by Jim Zwenerman. Beautiful piece of work, right down to the nail holes in the car sheathing.
It's too bad that we can't see more of this kind of work, what with Chooch seemingly out of the resin car kit business.

Jim Zwernemann retired from pattern making after the Bx-56 kit. He is a fantastic modeler.
Chooch is not going to do more kits due to the amount of time required to produce the product coupled with the fact that his resin caster retired.
