|My current project involves a MEC PS-1 50' boxcar that has been modeled with an open door viewing the leftover paper scraps and banding.
A couple of years ago Peter got us a $10 deal on two Kadee 50' PS-1 boxcars. For mine I decided to paint it in MEC green with the silver door and tiny herald. The car got painted and set aside for a couple of years. Since then at a train show I came across a MEC trio of the same car I had still awaiting decaling. These cars were offered by Intermountain. Peter and I built one each this past winter and the third was set aside for a later date which came this week. The kit is actually a pain to assemble. The ends, doors and roofwalk are all warped and need glueing and clamping. I was not looking forward to this project. I wanted to model an open door paper car which had been unloaded. This became that car...captions tell the story about the mess inside...George Dutka
