Athearn 40' AAR Steel Box Car Atlantic Coast Line ACL - HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$42   

Very high quality wood and metal kit from the Golden Age of HO Craftsman kits. Builds a very accurate and highly detailed prototype. Of the early metal box car kits, these are my favorites. Their popularity is witnessed by the various reissues through the years. Almost all the parts that are metal on the actual box car are metal on the model. This and the factory paint, lettering and decoration makes these kits difficult to beat for scale appearance. Features stamped steel body that is factory painted, decorated and lettered, steel car ends, doors and roof, steel ladders, door guides and brake platform, cast metal roof walk, bolsters, coupler pockets and three piece brake detail, stamped metal undercarriage beam with fine cross bearers, corner steps, grab irons and more. Includes real sprung trucks. The factory paint is 'excellent' with only light storage wear and I have packed them in the original factory wax paper sleeve and put them inside the instructions so it will not be damaged in shipment. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in factory sealed envelopes and all other parts have been inventoried complete including instructions.
