    I'm currently building the HO Funaro & Camerlengo ACF 1958 cu ft kit. My first epoxy kit. It came with the NKP decals, but I may slap some SL-SF decals on it instead. Thanks guys for the photos.

    Happy Building, Doug. If the weather's as nasty up Ann Arbor way as in Central Missouri, then it's a great weekend to work on a kit. Looking forward to seeing some photos of the end result.

    Best Regards,

    I used the old E & B Valley kit to model one of these sand cars about 30 years ago. I photographed one in TN Yard during the FMIG Convention in Memphis and copied it. It's black. I'll probably honor Tony Koester and letter the F&C kit hopper for NKP. Chris, we moved to Knoxville 1-1/2 years ago. I don't miss the snow. They've already had over a foot, and the winter is just starting.
