    My recent purchase was these... they date from 1940-1950.

    Kato models are notoriously difficult to strip. You may need to wet-sand it with a very fine grit sandpaper, unless you want to strip the entire model and repaint it.

    (y) I bought a musty-smelling stack of Railroad Magazines at a garage sale 50 years ago and still have them. They're great fun to read. Harry Bedwell's fictional boomer Eddie Sand is a favorite.

    Not model but prototype related, bought something else for a future planned Shadowbox display to show off my piece of 4449, and other assorted Daylight memorabilia I’ve collected. And yes it does have all 5 postcards in it.

    I have purchased several of Outland's kits and I have been very happy with them. They are simple, basic yet do the job perfectly. I am working on a apartment building I think right now, but oddly there is no door... Kinda weird...

    Yes wierd it is. Sounds like it is an apartment version of the Hotel California... "you can 'check out' any time you want... but you can never leave".
    Or... it could be fancy Raid 'roach motel' with a hidden 'one way' entrance.

    Got these in the mail yesterday. I got the plain white as I have both SP and UP MoW decals for them.

    Run8Racing,
    I used Joe's Model Trains Decal and Detail Remover. I've had a small bottle for years so I don't know if it is still available. I use a q-tip to dab some on the lettering and let it sit for about 15 minutes and then use a q-tip to rub the lettering. It usually takes several applications. Then I spray the area with gloss coat or if necessary, gloss black to ready for decals. I have found gold lettering to be the most difficult to remove.

    I had to shave and cut some of the sides to fit close to perfect so that I could glue them. Overall for the small footprint, these are the perfect size. Luckily no missing doors.:eek:

    The door wasn't missing... It wasn't even cast/printed into the model... Just windows, no doors.

    As you mentioned later on the glass door might be the door? Weird!

    I just decided to leave it as built, and will wait and see if anyone notices when it’s on my tram module.
