       Ric is pretty close to owing me $100 and his brother from another mother still owes me $20. So if you compound that over the years with interest we can go back to this.

      Korm,

        I have no ego so there is nothing to feed as I'm just a peckerhead as all Roosters are.  I only build junk from junk and use what I have on hand. So perhaps I can help you with the link below. However you already know what you are talking about so why ask me?

      https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QYH8J4X?tag=duckduckgo-ffnt-20&linkCode=osi&th=1&psc=1

      This post has been edited by Rooster:   have fun, think outside of the box and if you would like to feed EGOS my thread isn't for you but there are others here that need a constant food supply.

      if you've got no ego to stroke, i will not thank you for the link. (only, that you didn't tell me, to look it up on your website...)

      ps: i prefer to feed birds, not EGOS

      Bill,

       Re-read the entire thread ...it is all re-purposed as it's a "KITBASH"  with an effort of nothing wasted !

      I hope that was a typo, they are to be lettered for the Kaskaskia Valley Railway.  Looking at the PRR A6 3906 and 3907, I like that smokey Black that shows in the black and white photos on the PRR / Box Cab Google Site.  Yes, there are those that have stripes, but I like the utilitarian black.  Plan is to use Kaskaskia Valley Rwy like Pennsylvania is spelled out on the A6 pictures.

      OK...but you are getting the aluminum pipes unpainted and I'm , I am , Ain't  adding anymore details if that is the attitude.

      Paint them if you wish but I thought this was a "Freelance Kitbash" as you asked?  Now you are , your , you're hung up on a Pennsy prototype??   Hell you didn't , did not,  don't even know the A6 existed till we started talking!


      Shame on you as you call yourself a a boxcab addict!

       

      WTF ?


      There is a prototype for everything as I was TAUGHT by my ELDERS along with NO RULES for BOXCABS ?

       

      This is the truth and I AIN'T looking it up as I was ^^^^^^^^^^^

      Nothing is glued only pinned and can easily be removed if you wish. I take that back as some of the pins are tacked with paint and occasionally a roosters ass hair of CA. Yes, Roosters have asshairs however I have never seen a review on one.

       

      You only need 3 tools with these boxcabs Ric....one is floating between you're, your , ewer "eyeballs" the other two, to , too , 2 are  one of each              

      + and - screwdriver

      Note the "Port" and "Starboard" classification lights or perhaps they could be wired up as forward and backwards as all the LED's have 470 ohm resistors on the positive side as there is enough resistors on the negative side.
