Straight after my last post I managed to find some time to get on with the railcar, time now getting rather short.
The plastic Ashover sides were bonded into the railcar body and then the lower portion that protruded from the metal body was cut off with the exception of the doorways.
And here, finally is my idea. The wooden slat sides are now on the inside of the railcar forming the teak interior. The doors, being the only lower section seen from the outside are reversed to show the wood on the outside.
Next post I shall show the adding of external details with a short treatise on glue. Gripping stuff!
