River Point Station Utility/Service Body Accessory Installation Tips

We've updated our How-To article on installing and detailing the newly released River Point Station Ford F-450 models with service bodies, utility bodies with bucket lifts, and hi-rail versions of the bucket trucks. The newly released array of accessories can be used to significantly upgrade existing models, add details, or used as kitbashing material to create entirely new models. The latest addition to the How-To article is instructions on extending the bucket boom for realistic positioning for placement on Route87 dioramas or model railroad layouts. Ron Elsdoerfer of River Point Station has graciously offered his tips on installing the accessory and upgrade components so we've included them in our How-To section. We thank Ron for his contribution to our web site and, more broadly, to the enjoyment of our hobby with great models! Read more in our How-To article. [posted 10/09/2017]
