    They were a kit-bash of sorts. I believe I used some Rowa roofs from their lightweight cars that I cut down considerably. I suppose any lightweight roof will work They may have a bit too much curve yet but they are close. The Arnold Old Timer cars are narrower so the curved edges of the roof are cut away along with any attachment tabs underneath. To attach I just used a thin line of tacky glue along the very edges where the roof meets the wall of the car but there are probably better ways for that.

    Has anyone on TB been in touch with Mark Watson? He used to have really great stuff at Shapeways but now I see almost all of it is gone. I was really looking forward to getting a ventilated boxcar.

    He's very active over on TRW. I thnk you will see less and less of his Shapeways items and he's now fully printing from his resin printer and doing it himself for better quality and pricing.
