Here is the post by Dale Buxton describing his findings and how to modify a 705 to fit in the cast box.

Kadee 705 to 714 compatibility?

Ed Tibbetts
 

A couple of months ago I mounted Kadee 705’s on the pilots of all 6 of my HOn3 brass steam side rod locomotives. I use a pick to assist coupling and to uncouple. I find the 705’s mated to the 714’s to be very difficult to pick open, and not much easier to get them to mate (couple). I have not experimented with 705 to 705 uncoupling with a pick.
Is anyone else having similar issues? Solutions? I do not want to install 705’s on all my rolling stock.

Would you please post pictures of the PFM pilot model of the 1954 K-28? Thanks

In 1954, PFM imported one hand built K28 to serve as a "pilot" model. In 55' 18 kits were brought in, followed by 13 handmade RTR models.  In 56'm production began, bringing in two runs, 123 in the first, and 156 in the second.  They weren't done again until 1965. 

The sad thing is, they were never offered with a plow, although the Pilot model of 1954 sported it. Also, it was way more detailed than the actual runs.  I can post photos if anyone is interested, as I have it in my collection.

Randy,

I've found for great results (albeit a lot of work) with any wood kit.... I spray the finished car(s) with clear semi-gloss Deft Lacquer. The lacquer seals the wood pours and lifts the grain slightly. Once dry...(in minutes) I sand the surface using a small 400 grit sanding sponge. This creates a surface that feels as smooth as a babies bottom, then spray PBL's Star brand or True- color paint (both are an acetone based paint). I would try some test pieces first before spraying a model though.

I'm midway through building Narrow Gauge Colorado's Placerville Depot kit (stuck on the roofing) and used PBL's Star Brand for the first time. Used their thinner, but was really impressed with how well it went down.

I have been trying for years to airbrush acrylics with varying results, PBL's paint is the closest I've come to old school original formula Floquil in... well a really, really long time.

So Randy, consider this a long winded +1 to John's recommendation!

Let's hope there is an interested person or group, that will acquire Eric's important line of model railroading products, for both current and future modelers to enjoy.

The website will be closing in 2020, but Rio Grande Models is still operating for now and will eventually be winding down as it is in its current form.

So place your orders and buy up all that you can before the kits truly become "limited editions".
