m&ls caboose #8

In the above photo, Manistique & Lake Superior caboose #8 trails an outside-frame composite wood Ann Arbor hopper past the depot on my N Scale display layout. This is a Micro-Trains steel caboose with a scratch-built cupola. Window glazing is a clear liquid film that is placed using a toothpick around the inside window frames and then drawing the liquid via capillary action across the open space of the window. I build these up in two to three layers after final assembly and painting. You will find detailed "how-to" instructions and more photos on my main AA caboose pages.
