Blacksmith's Car. I kitbashed this blacksmith's car from a Model Die Casting flat car to which I added a scratchbuilt forge, a Preiser (?) figure, and roof supports made of from rectangular-section styrene. The coal box comes from an old AGM lumberyard kit, the grinding wheel and anvil from a destroyed Fine Scale Miniature kit. I made the forge by cutting irregular blocks of styrene — the same stock used for the supports — glued around a dowel. After painting and weathering the forge, I glued some cinders in its center with a metal rod sticking out and painted the center bright red [GPL].
