Any help would be fine.
Author: Woodman

Last weekend I went to a train show and found two 1979 Walther's 70' Pullman coaches for $5 each.  I love to make models and do a fine job of making them.  I have made just about every wood kit LaBelle has made.  But, I have never made one of these older Walther's kits.  If any TO people have made them, what advice would you have for me due to your experience?  I have learned to use good glue and fishing line for truss rods on all LaBelle stuff.  Thanks ahead for any help that might make the kit better.

Are these models of heavyweight cars made with die cast metal? If so, I think modelers used Walthers Goo for these models.

Drilling the sheet metal sides for grabirons was very intimidating.
I tried to solder them on with only partial success.
Glad to have seen the last of them.

Yes to the first question,, they are heavy weights.  These have plastic sides and top. Well painted and they look nice. I will use Goo where I can.
