I´m currently working in this nice kit. It´s from Wiseman, many castings are from the old Durango Press kit. I found easy to work with wood and white metal castings, needs some work, but is very funny to work with it.

I started with the iddler flat. I will replace all factory trucks with new ones from San Juan car Co., I found its trucks much better than the white metal ones.

The Pile driver assmebly is based in 3 parts. The flat car, PD body and tower. I started with the body. I´m planning to build a removable roof and detail the interior as much I can.

I didnt notice before, but you even put the tiny nut and bolt castings in the appropriate places on the frame where they will not be visible. estas loco?
