I undercut the edges of the roof on the body and copula. Rebuilt the ends with wire and ladders ,added see through end platforms and steps, added all brake gear and plumbing. The walk is Plano see through, the stack is scratched, and window shades were put in place. Thanks for looking.

    That is one good lookin' caboose! I bet if you shot it outside on a simple diorama you could fool a lot of people into thinking that was prototype. Nice job!!

    Mike, Boxcab, thank you both.

    Mike, photographing outside is a good idea. My old board is fair, so with the right background, it should look OK.

    Regards, Bobby

    Thank you Doug. I don't know the maker of the trucks, I had them laying around. I did replace the wheel sets with KD 33''.

    Very prototypical! Just like the Big Guys, "Hey, here are some trucks!"
    And another crew's caboose is left up on blocks.
