Bench projects

The work on the building where the layout will live progresses.  It's gotten to the point where I have moved the On30 module and my workbench in and set them up.  Being back at the bench has let me just back into a few in-progress projects.
Another of my HO wood chip car conversion that I had just started when the bench got packed up.  This one started as a 3 bay coal hopper.
I had decided that since I had done 7 wood chip conversions so far in HO, that I would do a few for my N scale equipment.

I started with a Micro Trains boxcar.  It was much more delicate than what I am used to, almost brittle.  While cutting the roof off, the car basically shattered.  Some reinforcement and careful glue work and its back together and I think is going to come out alright.
