Bachmann Caboose Refurbish

A short interim blog on my refurbished Bachmann Caboose.

This started life as a Bobber Caboose as found in the big haulers set.  A strip down removing the wheels, chassis, and cupola from the main body, and then the ancillary items.  This was followed by a clean down and removal of the original decals, and a light wet and dry on the body and cupola.  The roofs and window openings were masked and the items were primed, and when dry sprayed with Burgundy Red.
