I don’t have a Consolidation and I’ve been thinking about getting one. The H3 looks nice, but I’m thinking more like an H9 or H10. Wondering why you removed the PRR from the tender side. Also wondering why you removed the striping from one side only.
I picked up an H3 a few months ago. It was another MTH parts donor and arrived minus boards. I was able to get factory boards but one took over 2 months to arrive thanks to the Post Office SNAFU. It came letter for C&O but the Central bought it and will reletter it for NYC&HR. BTW its internally packed, barely room for a straight pin in there. Quite the packaging feat.
