Reply to "K-Line RPO Interior Upgrade"

Thank you for the compliment Hancock52.  I agree with you on true 1/48 scale vs. compressed scale for passenger cars.   The Arttista figures #1181, #1324, #1325 seem to fit well to add some action.  And I found the wooden chair from Scale City Designs.

PRRHorseshoe, to make the subfloor I used a thin sheet of 1/32” x 3” x 24” basswood.  Then cut it to the same width as metal K-Line base (the ends of the subfloor were cut slightly shorter due to the clearance for cars end caps).  I elevated the basswood subfloor on 1/4” x 1/8” wooden strips to gain clearance above the existing power and ground wires from the trucks.  This small clearance space under the subfloor can be seen in the photos with the doors open.  The subfloor with stained horizontal slats was then mounted on top of the metal K-line base using the same exact screw locations that held the plastic interior. The trick is to line up your 1/4 x 1/8 wooden strips with the factory screw hole locations.  I did not connect anything to the outer shell or it’s extrusions.  

One side note, since the interior floor gets elevated to clear the wires running underneath your standing figures will be too tall.  Their feet will need to be removed to bring them back down to normal size.
