The second model I am upgrading is a Bowser N5C, a former PRR car with the distinctive porthole windows. The Bowser RTR cabooses are really nice, and I think they are a great bargain these days. On this car I am blanking out some windows, adding a vent and adding kick plates to the end railings. I am also removing the roof walk and the upper parts of the ladders to the roof.
The window on the far right had had a vent added to it, it will be sealed
by painting it over with blue paint.
I sealed the end window on the left using paint. The kick plate in .010 styrene,
waiting to be painted blue. I have also clipped off the upper two
grab irons on the adder. I will also replace the couplers with Kadee 158's
