Todays project! 😀I had a "kit" for a D.S.P & P reefer.Unfortunately the eBay seller had picked out almost all wood and most hardware....I found the original drawings online and built it from scratch!The only thing from the kit is the hinges, door lock and footsteps.
The rest is wood, plasticard, Grandt line and some Tichy.

So, Now it's almost finished...At least I got the paint and decals on.:)I found some Grandt line trucks that I'm using on this one.



Now some very light weathering and installing the couplers.

Very nice! Many, many years ago I built a LaBelle Tiffany reefer but it didn't have the quality of detailing that yours has. At the time, my wife & I traveled around Texas looking for small hobby shops that had any LaBelle HOn3 kits. Back then, there were little shops everywhere and all of them had several of the kits. Now, there is one train shop in a city as large as Dallas and if it ain't RTR, they don't have or want to have whatever it is! Times have sure changed.

Again, very fine work.

Thanks! I don't know why people fear kit building.
It's so much fun, and gives me a longer lasting satisfaction than buying RTR.
