We thank Martin Brechbiel, editor of O Scale Trains Magazines, for sharing his talent and creativity building A Western Style CB&Q Caboose.  Martin used several basic parts from the CB&Q 3D printed kit and many additional items from his personal treasure chest of model railroading parts.  This scratch build is a good opportunity to see how the modeler can improvise.  Beautiful job!
