I am posting this thread for 2 reasons: 1. To show case the amassing job Rick McClellan did putting these hoppers together. 2. To compare them to the RTR version of the car. Some things I noticed: All the detailing Rick put on was right on with the RTR car. The boxes look like these were an earlier release. The kits are a little liter shade of gray, and solid color, the RTR car is darker with the hopper bottom part black. Pictures below.
