1/87 B112 Roundhouse-Model Die Casting 40' AAR Metal Sheathed Box Car - CRP Jersey Central - Metal HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks
Metal Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Includes real sprung metal trucks. Roundhouse (by Model Die Casting) was a famous manufacture of HO Craftsman kits in the 1940s/1950s. This is one of their all- metal car kits. Very well detailed and crisply cast with little or no flash. Molded in details are superb. Features all metal one piece roof, three piece roof walk, car ends, floor and undercarriage, factory painted and lettered sides for Jersey Central (green and gold), three piece brake set, couplers, pocket doors, bushings, screws as needed, grab irons, full instructions with drawings and more. The prepainted sides are very good, but the gold has some fading (possibly a factory flaw). (See Photo, left) The roof, floor, ends, doors and car sides are very flat and straight for easy assembly. The kit has never been started. Most small parts are still sealed in the factory envelopes. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions.
