    Freight Car Models, Vol. I: Techniques

    Freight Car Models, Vol. II: Box Cars


    Both by Robert Schleicher. Is there any Gauge member who has a copy and can comment on the content of either one of these books?

    Thanks,
    Torp

    They are excellent books. The entire series is very good. While most of the articles deal with specific prototypes, the techniques carry over well to other projects.

    My personal experience is that I don't care for anything that particular person has ever done. I think there were only ever two articles in RMC that I thought were helpful. Just one of those things I guess. It is probably just me! sign1
