HOn3 Scratch-built Caboose

edited August 2018 in Miscellaneous Builds
I built this in either 1979 or 1980. The only bought parts were the brake gear, trucks, and couplers. I think this was the only time I ever used white styrene to model with. It is of course based rather carefully on the D&RGW cabooses from the 1950s. Cheers!

  • Wow, 28 or 29 years ago. Early teens. Quite good at that tender age. If you were ever tender, which I have my doubts.

    Ha, ha, ha! I'm 61. I was tender once; oddly, I'm still tender toward acts of loyalty, or true courage, or kindness, or decency, or graciousness . . . I better stop.
  • I am totally with you there. Those are the things that count the most. Gotta pick up Satchel.
  • Found a prototype photo to compare. No Internet when I made this.
