1/87 439 Silver Streak 40' Wood Sheathed Refrigerator Car - Edelweiss Beer - HO Craftsman Kit
Wood and Metal Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Classic kit from the Craftsman Era of HO kits. Very detailed and well made kit. Silver Streak was one of a number of manufacturers that created very realistic wood and metal kits during the 1940s and 1950s. This is, in my opinion, an exceptional kit. Includes pre-scribed and cut and factory painted and lettered hardwood sides decorated with 'Drink Edelweiss Brew' and all other required markings, fully milled and cut hardwood roof and floor, beautiful cast car ends, brass door hardware and cast brake parts including levers, cast coupler pockets, underside girders, bolsters, ice hatches, brake wheel, metal ladders, grab irons, roof ribs and brake linkage, scale chain and more. This kit has complete underside detail and instructions to help with this tricky but rewarding task. Includes full size plans and instructions. The kit has never been started. All parts are still internal factory sealed bags.
