This is another new add to my rooster, a High Side Gondola kit from San Juan Car Company. I built it in a couple of nights, but paint was the worst part, it took me about 4 days to complete with weathering included. But I´m very happy with the result!! Now I have to add a coal load, I did a foam base painted black.

Excellent job, Lucas. Even the black foam looks great! Carry on, sir.

You make it look easy! You are well on your way to having a nice roster of rolling stock.
