This is a pack of chassis required for an HO Scale (1:87) kit for a pair of Union Pacific's Water Tenders 'Jim Adams' and ‘Joe Jordan’ as used in the excursion train behind UP 844 and UP 3985.
The kit is made up of two packs:
Pack 1, includes the main body, roof handrails, trucks, truck bolster pins, toolboxes, flag plates ladders & headlights.
Pack 1 is only printable in the Smooth Fine Detail material.
Pack 2, this pack, which is printed in the Versatile Plastic material, includes the chassis only.
You will need both packs for the kit, the link below will take you to the Pack 1 page so you can also add it to your cart.
Pack 1 (Main body, Ladders, Head Lamps, Trucks, Bolster Pins, Toolboxes, Flag Plates)
The kit also requires 4 no. Kadee No.5 (Or similar) body mount couplers and 12 no. Proto 2000 series 33” wheelsets No.920-21259, which are not included.
The rooftop handrails are very delicate and to prevent damage during shipping they are a separate part contained in a frame, they will require cutting out of the frame before installing.
The bodies separate from the chassis to allow weight to be added (weight will be needed as they are very light).
Pack 1 for the kit is only printable in the Smooth Fine Detail materials and will require cleaning before painting. I recommend washing with warm soapy water than soaking in Goo Gone or similar product for about 24 hours. Then rinsing off with warm water and allowing to dry.
The flag plates are designed for the flag details from www.circusdecals.com
. A full set of decals for this car can be found here
. You only need one set of these decals for both cars.
