    This wagon is loaded with sugar beets. They are made of arugula seeds.

    Bell and smal "chimney" is removed as well as plastic generator on the left side of the chimney. It will be finally replaced prototypically on the right side of the chimney. Excessive holes must be filled in:

    Thanks for the seeds tip, Pawel. I've been looking for realistic "produce" for my city vendor scenes. Seeds are a great idea. I can even plant what I don't use. Jim

    I almost finished when I noticed one missing element. Coal box was enlarged with some metal stripe. I made this as well:

    I tried to follow the prototype photo while weathering:

    Pearl, what method did you use to mask off the green paint when you painted the black? John

    To mask the green paint I used Tamiya masking tape. There were some small places in the corners difficult to mask. Those small places were painted by handbrush. Green was airbrushed. Black painting was done using Tamiya spray pain in the can.

    I made buffers using simple technique developed by one of my modelling friends. Pin's heads were grinded using Dremel. Red plastic tube is a piece of wire insulation.

    Buffers attached and somde more painting:

    There will be a break with body shell. It must wait for decals.

    Hi Pawel,
    Shell looks good! Are you going to use the Rokuhan shorty guts for propulsion?

    That is one of three options. Chassis is designed for it. Second one is to use chassis from Rokuhan sets (KIHA)

    I also consider another Shorty based option using different approach to the chassis. I found it on e-bay:
