IDR CW elephant van

Hi All
 I recently purchased the IDR CW elephant van to mix in with my other cattle wagons.
This kit is a very easy kit to build with the only hassle was the clean up of the flash
between the boards on the bottom. The Austrains 4 wheel RTR wagon chassis makes
the underfloor so easy with only some filing of the weight necessary. At $45 the kit is
a beauty and good on IDR for doing a model of an unusual subject.
And a picture of the van almost finished just a little more weathering.
Till next time

Casula Hobbies NPCF quick look

Hi All
 When i got home Friday afternoon my parcel from Casula Hobbies had arrived.
Here is a quick look at NPCF 12052Q
Well im impressed  with these wagons as they have far exceeded my expectations. I like the
printing of the wagon codes with the old three code still partially visible and
im very happy that i preordered them to save $50. I say congrats to Joe on  the choice of
wagon and how well it came out.
Now time to weather them up.
Till next time
