"Tichy 53' 6 flat car"

Very easy kit with no brake detail. Quick build but looks quite good for something so easy to put together.

"Nice kit"
pitbullsfamily
A nice easy build that can be the platform for many open loads. The kit is nicely detailed from regular viewing angles. The only issues I found concerned with weight and coupler height. First off, if using the supplied weight between the under frame bottom of deck, the coupler height comes out very high. I did not use this weight and I basically resolved this issue. I was able to get the coupler height right on with an overset shank Kadee coupler. As is typical of a flat car, it is under the weight recommended by the NMRA. I added weight by securing bb’s to the underside between the frame and sidesills. I was careful not to interfere with the wheels. Unfortunately steel bbs do not bring the weight up to proper weight. Lead shot would be a better choice to add weight. However, care must be used if doing so due to the hazards of lead. I think this kit is a great choice for those who like to build and tinker. I have a handful of these rolling on my railroad.
