      Off to a great start! It's already mean looking.

      Is that a resin or styrene body? If resin, what do you do for "cement/glue/etc" with resin? I've not worked with it much (a couple of boxcars I assembled over 20 years ago) , so I don't have any experience to speak of.

      In my slotting interest, I have four resin bodies now, so it's time to start thinking about what adhesive(s) I'll need to work with resin.

        Shhhhhh!....The car is being built under extreme security conditions.
        Guards are stationed 24 - 7 outside the shop.

        (Unamed sources, speaking on condition of anonymity report ..........
        The body is a resin casting donated by Mark Thomas.
        Adhesive is Gorilla Super glue with Bondo brand automotive finishing skim coat)

            Rumor has it that Schultz will sing like a drunken Canary in exchange for a dozen Bavarian Cream donuts.

                      Mighty fine, mighty fine, Mr. Brew. I love modeling, when a guy can take a blank body shell and create a unit that anyone that ever ran a 1.1 oval car, can say yea that's it!
