    I believe I started this HOn3 kit in 1995. Just found it in a box in the garage and restarted it tonight.[​IMG]

    Nut, bolt & washer (castings). Larger scales use them. N, not so much.

    Flat coat to protect the dry transfers. Need to do trucks (ordered some), couplers, and brake stuff and stirrups.[​IMG]

    These precision scale company 4’ wheelbase C&S trucks are hard to assemble but I got one running smoothly.

    I used blue tac to hold everything together as I assembled it; helped eliminate the need for three hands as mentioned in the instructions.

    Hi Joe, I am not sure. I sealed up the weights inside in the 90s
