Rolling Stock underway

  Finally  !   I finished & completed my first wagon,  a Parkside NE 12 ton 6 plank open wagon.  A very nice kit as expected,  no problems and a joy to build !  Learned a few tips along the way that I won't forget in the future.  I added some weight under the floor to make the wagon heavier,  which will help with smooth rolling.  Model was brush painted with Tamiya acrylics,  and weathered with washes and chalk powders.  This is the nice thing about O scale,  even just a single wagon can be impressive.  1 done,  39 to go.
