Thread: FMC hopper

  1. #1

    Default FMC hopper

    I know we have Jeff's hopper but was wondering if someone could build a non photo skin car made for repainting? Jeff's is in need of a major upgrade for today's standards . Have a few personal projects in mind. We are missing a few hoppers as well. Was working with Robert Murphy but his email bounced , and hasn't been on in a couple years.

    I guess all of our modelers have left or not willing to help produce cars we do not have yet.

    Good luck.
    There really isn't many people available to do many models, or even paint work these days. If there is, most are now private use being certain groups and that is it.

    I pulled one up and it doesn't look that hard to retexture to what you want.
    Start with a newish/clean one, convert to grey and have at it.

    The thing is this is a photo skin hopper not a true hopper like Murphy did for me in 2013. He was busy at the time so didn't bug too much but got the 4427's done. Im seeking a true FMC car and Jeffs needs a major overhaul for today's standards. And Shawn I think your right, I wish there was more people to help.
