I've started on a build of an old time craftsman kit, the labelle soo line boxcar, and I thought it would be neat to share my progress.
This my first Labelle kit, so it's been interesting.
As you can see in the pictures, I've weighted the car to NMRA spec, and have added underside detail (brakes and levers) using the parts supplied with the kit.
The trucks are Archbar style brass trucks from protocraft. I will be having a go at painting them. Any painting tips would be appreciated.
