Well, I did it again!

I finally bought one of the Sunshine Models of the C&O "Deco" boxcar. It came up on eBay for a "reasonable" price, and I snapped it up.

The model arrived today, and I showed it to my wife.

She asked what made this kit worth the price, and I showed her the nifty Deco ends in the kit.

She said "That's all, those goofy looking pieces", and I replied "yes!"

Then she said it, "You have got to be kidding me!"

I assume you are aware that Intermountain produced the C&O box car with the Art Deco ends. I only found out about it after I had bought the American Scale Models brass version. Well, both are beautiful cars with a lot of differences in the details.

The wife is fine with whatever. It's the mother in law that has a problem. "You spent how much for that train? Why not buy my daughter a pair of shoes?!" "Because" I replied calmly "I already did that twice this month, now it's my turn to get something." Ohh boy, did my wife laugh. I'm so blessed that my SO is supportive of my hobby, so I try to support her's.

Nope, I had no idea. I would assume if undecorated versions were made, they were pretty rare. I have never seen one for sale.

All OK. I enjoy assembling Sunshine kits.
