Very nice i love the 322 with the sit . goid luck. Staysafe.

I am trying to put together some of the catalog kits that included my newly restored #336. One of my favorite cars of all the kits is the #982 BAR Boxcar. Who doesn't like that color scheme? I have been watching eBay for a while and quickly got discouraged with what these cars go for. However, one night I was working late and got side tracked and starting surfing eBay. At 1am someone put up a #982 for "Buy Now"....no auction. With a quick look over of the pictures I knew I found the one. I ended up paying $39.85 and that included the shipping.

As soon as I got it I went to work on cleaning up the paint. I spent over an hour carefully scrubbing and meticulously picking away scratches. It turned out better than I ever could have thought....the pictures below are proof in the pudding.

Here are the eBay pictures....

On a side note. I want to share the beauty of micro brushes. These things are gentle and have multiple sizes to get in all those tiny S Scale crevices. I cleaned the entire car with these using Dawn dish detergent lightly diluted in water.

You can get them here on eBay: Click Here
