SPng #26- finished

Post by John Coker » Sun Aug 03, 2014 2:35 pm

I finished this Rio Grande Models kit in Sn3. I added a lot of extra parts to make it look right and sit on the trucks correctly.
Please scroll down to see a phpto of it unpainted.

Beautiful work, #26 is one of my favorites. I wish the car were painted that way today, but I am not sure the NCNG museum would go for it.

John, I think you captured the "in good repair" but a bit dirty that was the SP's narrow gauge... they were not the rolling junk yard found elsewhere... all was in good repair until the end.
