Northeastern Scale Models

Manufacturer ID:

SS-1

Category:

Stock Car

Product Type:

Craftsman Kit

Finish:

unpainted

Notes:

This kit builds into an AAR double-deck stock car with "hat" section side braces and solid ends. The kit comes with a two-page instruction sheet, with one page containing the directions, and the other showing scale drawings that show how the parts are to be formed and installed. The kit did not come with couplers, wheels, or decals. The main photo shows Ed's completed model, which he painted with ScaleCoat #2013 "box car red". He used decals from Champion, Enhorning, and Midgage. He completed the model using Kadee S-scale #808 couplers, and Northeastern Scale Models sprung Bettendrof trucks. Photo #2 shows the model as built, before paint. Photo #3 shows the metal AB brake system parts that come with the kit, as well as the metal wire needed to form the piping, rods, and also the grab irons. The kit also includes a sheet of brass from which the modeler can form the levers and slack adjuster. Photo #4 shows the sold end of this model. Ed chose to model a KCS version, of which there were 10 on the railroad in 1953.
