Now with separate roof details for a smoother roof print. This Baltimore & Ohio 45 foot coach was built in 1856 to the design of Henry Tyson, the railroad's master of machinery. The model is based on two often-reproduced contemporary drawings. The correct semi-working and working trucks and link & pin couplers are included. All that's needed to finish is wheelsets ( .540" axles, MT or similar). Use .010" wire for the end railings, for which locator holes are provided, or use the slightly oversized railings included. (You will need to enlarge the holes if using these). The ends are also made to accommodate Republic Locomotive Works etched brass end platforms with railings. Trucks mount with #0 screws or with pins provided. A Microscale Z/Nn3 coupler can be substituted for the link and pins, using the same mounting hole. Because of its small size and fine detail, Frosted Ultra Detail is preferred.
Clean with warm soapy water before painting. Use Bestine rubber cement remover if particularly greasy. Enamels or acrylics recommended.
Part Number R02. See also version R02i with interior seating. Note that the photos show a preproduction test model, with the roof left unglued to the body and without couplers. Because this model has very small details, be sure to check the "print anyways" box at checkout to be sure it will be printed.
