1/87 4-226 Menzies Timken Roller Freight AAR Metal Box Car Craftsman Kit - (Ex-Athearn) - Bagged
Metal Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed
Still factory sealed. This is the G.F. Menzies reissue of the classic Athearn kit. It builds into a very realistic model because the kit uses the same materials as the prototype. All sides, doors and roof are fully decorated and in mint condition, still factory sealed inside. Includes wooden floor, opening doors, metal underside and detail fittings such as AB brake set, brake wheel, etc. Even the doors and car ends are factory painted! Makes a great stand alone models or high-quality rolling stock for your line. Some modeling skills recommended. In the late 1940s/early 1950s there was a revolution in model railroading: high quality kits became available for the first time. Before this, there were few standard gauges and most railroads were scratch built to any gauge the collector desired. Please see the article (on this website) that tells of the history of these fine kits.
