New MTL PRR Diner

Against my better judgement, here are scans of the sides of the New Diner.  We have most of the parts test shot, waiting for the underframe this week.  Now where are my Southern Pacific Decals.  :D





As of now, I am not clear on release date, but will post that as soon as I know.


Cheers

To clarify the exact PRR Diner, this is a D78bR (R for airconditioning):


I do not have my Pennsy books available now, but there were 30 odd some of these from their inception 1932-1933? to the 1950s (I think). I look forward to purchasing many of what looks like excellent prototypical models. Personally I am going to rid these of their nasty airconditioning equipment to bring them back to D78b.  :D

EDIT: From what I can tell (no books to confirm) these are also close to the D78cR. Also, since the D78 class specs are the same, who wants to fire up their etcher and makes some sides?

Hmm... now you're cookin'...

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

It looks good so far.  Looking forward to getting one in Burlington and Great Northern even though I am sure they are foobies.  I wonder if there will be a Pullman one.....

It does look good, Joe.  I will probably end up chopping a couple up a bit to make them into things you never intended (since I don't model PRR), but definitely a good starting point.  Thanks for giving us an early look.

Some things are better left unsaid. Which I generally realize right after I have said them.

Hi Joe,
That is looking really good. When it is released it will break my MTL drought. I reckon in the first batch I could put away four. Along with quite a few of the new trucks.
Bonus time for the PRR modeller.

Will it come in FEMA death camp gray?
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me
