I built a LaBelle HOn3 gondola kit, and decided to make a honorary car for my late mother Yvonne who died last year of cancer.
I have already a mine on my layout called the Ywon mine.
So this became the Yvon/Ywon Gold mine Co. car number 47 (as in her birth year).
Weathered to represent a well used car that has shipped a lot of gold ore.
The text are dry transfers. The boggies are 3D printed from Shapeways with Kadee wheels.
The couplers are Sergent Sharon-couplers.
I'm very satisfied with it.
