1/87 A505 Athearn One Dome Tank Car - Union Oil 76 - HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks
VG+ Metal old
Includes working sprung metal trucks. Very high quality metal kit from the Golden Age of HO Craftsman kit. Builds a very accurate and highly detailed prototype. Of the Craftsman metal tank car kits, Athearn's are my personal favorites for scale and detail. Almost all the parts that are metal on the actual box car are metal on the model. This kit is factory painted for Union 76 in overall blue with the colorful 76 logo. Features stamped tank top and bottom with fine rivet and panel detail, die-cast tank ends, die cast dome, frame, supports and bolsters, steel center support rail, metal hand rails, brake set, couplers and draft gear cover plates, steps, dump valves, ladders and more. The factory paint is excellent, and still wrapped in the factory protective plastic. NOTE: the bottom tanker shell, ends and dome have all been painted an identical matching blue. There is no other painting or assembly. The kit has been inventoried complete including instructions. NOTE: instructions are a photocopy of the 3 dome model.
