New American Flyer Mill Gondola with coil covers

My new American Flyer car arrived today - A Pennsylvania mill gondola with coil covers. It is a good addition to the two other gondola's with coil covers that American Flyer has produced - the Bethlehem Steel gondola and the EJ&E car from the NASG. Its not a bad car, but the overall tuscan red paint job is sort of...boring.

Here are some photos of the new car.

New out of the box!

The coil covers don't quite cover the entire gondola.

Close up of the coil cover showing the detail of the brackets and grab wires.

Nice detail on the end of the coil cover.

The covers stack up - just like the prototype

The interior paint is a little uneven.
