I won't say "what in Sam Hill?" but I will say "very nice work"!
The fluting is well done on the car side and roof, do you know if that is a home milling job?

Bob

Bob,

The photo you're talking about (I think) isn't one of the "Doodlebug".  That slipped thru while I was loading photos to the gallery, sorry.

What that is is a photo of an aluminum extrusion done by OK Engines (in New York) of a Seaboard Sun-Lounge car.

Only problem is the Sun-Lounge cars didn't have fluting on the roof.

I've got one myself I bought a couple of years ago I.  When it came in I decided to remove the fluting to make it look more or less correct.  I'll upload some photos of my car to the gallery, but in the mean time here's a photo of the real deal:

I remember an article from long ago, I forget what publication, of someone constructing diesel bodies (I think the article featured an F-3) using tissue paper and white glue over a wood armature.

If memory serves, they looked very good.
