    I've finished both of the Red Ball, Manns Creek hoppers. They are a combination of styrene and laser cut brass parts. They go together pretty good, but a lot of imagination is required. The directions for these is allmost as bad as for their skeleton log cars.

    Her is a loaded one,

    Thank You!

    Yea, you guys are right, they turned out pretty good. For weight in the mt car, I left abit of rock in the bottom for an aditional 1/2 oz.
    I debated making the doors operable, but after seeing that hinge bar/pin on the mt car, it's probably a good thing I didn't:oops: :oops:

    Here is the car before weathering
