MOW Challenge - KCS Brandt Rail truck

Having made significant progress on the layout/workshop space I'm tossing in for this.  My objective - replicating  a Brandt Railtruck as a static model for KCS use.  There are a whole two pictures on the internet:

But that should be enough.

Why a Brandt you ask? Well I picked up an N scale resin kit for one years ago, and with all the Trainworx and Showcase parts now available, I thought it time to get the thing done.

Pictures of the kit this weekend - along with a work plan.

I hope.

Oooh finally some KCS action around here!  :drool:
Or on any forums really...  :facepalm:
Now if you could just get it to run on the track...  :D
Science isn't about why, it's about why not. Why is so much of our science dangerous? Why not marry safe science if you love it so much? In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired! Not you, test subject, you're doing fine.

I'm not @u18b or @David K. Smith. If it looks good and can be used to do a few photo things from time to time I'll call it good.

Here’s the kit:



I’ve got some rail wheels dug out and a few more detail parts. Couplers will be an issue - while it’s not obvious in the photo there is definitely a coupler on the back. Problem for me is this truck would probably work best with a Z scale coupler but I dont have any of those at the moment.

Welp

It’s now nearly all free of casting artifacts, excess resin etc. and I think I have an idea of how to put it together. Would love the instructions though.
