You might change your mind on affordability once you see the actual model.

What's the word on these guys? Us NH fans haven't been waiting as long as SPFs for a M1 but they do seem like a long time coming.

The FL9s are en route to distributors, so they should start appearing at stores within the next week or so.  The PBLWs are scheduled to arrive imminently at Rapido and should follow the FL9s to the stores by about week.

I know very little about these cars, so who can tell me what I need to know to build these 2 cars ?  Ex BAR ....I saw the pre production models at Springfield, and they were very nice......Since they are out of my era, this is how I can support the effort...

You'd be better off starting with the undec model and then modifying the windows appropriately.  Or, you could start with one of the Pullman green New Haven no-number cars and remove the lettering.

Would it be conceivable, if these do well, that we might someday see a CN "Canadian Flyer" coach?

If you don't know what it is, don't throw it out.

They have stated in the past that they have no interest in doing the CN versions (there were two).  Whether or not they might change their mind is hard to say... but one can at least hope.

What is the other car?  You mentioned "2" but only had one link?

It would be an interesting but rather in depth kitbashing involving filling most of the windows with something like JB Weld or baking soda and Super Glue, with the windows that are retained likely being taken from something like one of the older baggage - mail models such as the newer style Con-cor RPO that had two pane sliding windows.  Finding windows will be hard to do but if you can manage to cast the parts it would help at least a little in regards to creating the look you would want.  Something at least to think about.

Here's a shot of the other side of the car...

Funny you should mention that... working on class PB-74-F "balloon top cars". Please excuse the crappy cell phone grab. I had the carbody printed in FUD FXD, and the chassis printed in WSF to save on print costs, but the carbody shrank relative to the chassis. The next batch will be entirely printed in FUD FXD to ensure that the two halves fit, and will then be released.

Why not FXD?  Would provide better detail overall.

Thanks guys...
Here is the other car...I'm hoping I can find some appropriate windows from Tichy or Grandt line,...or maybe even Pikestuff. I would make a bunch of "plugs" from styrene, then cut out for the smaller windows, ...The prototype didn't make sure they were all perfect, so mine don't have to be either!

SO are there different versions of the model in regards to windows?...Or is it just with skirts or without??

 I think the 901 would be easier, and I have more pics of it...This is the only pic of 902 that I could find..

All the N scale versions of the Rapido model have partial skirts.  There wasn't enough clearance for the trucks to pivot with full skirts (on 9¾" radius I'm guessing), and it will be easy enough to remove the partial skirts to have a skirt-less model.

Just the one version.  This is the 10-window intercity variant.
