50 ton AAR Flatcar in Z

I received a sample today. Here's a one-piece brass casting of a 50 ton AAR Flatcar in Z scale.  It's set up for a laser-cut wood deck and Full Throttle/Bowser trucks and couplers.  The weight seems appropriate and all rivet detail rendered well.  I'm considering a run of these in kit form, if there's interest (from anyone not named Chris).   ;)

Can't nail it down yet, but it will be AZL range reasonable, not FR custom brass priced.

I'm in for a few as well. 

Not sure what you are considering for decking materials, but the laser board we use comes in .023 and .015.  Maybe some veneers would work as well.  Regardless, a standard flat without a deck has unlimited possiblities.
