My latest creation for the upcoming On30 ET&WNC layout is one of Tweetsie’s iconic wooden hopper cars.

My modeling buddy Bill Nelson scratch built the wooden body.

I went to work adding detail parts, grabs, stake pockets, wheels and couplers.

Here is the model in primer gray.

Next steps will be to follow the prototype and paint and letter the car.

The original used a mixture of lampblack, linseed oil and japan drier to get the dark gray/black color.

This according to the good folks in the ET&WNC Historical Society.

Thanks for looking.
