MODELING: Zwernemann Time

Jim Zwernemann has been featured in my blog postings in the past. It is always a treat to be able to view and share his modeling.

The West India Fruit reefer is a modified Chooch Ultra Scale II reefer kit. Jim did the masters as a Fruit Growers Express reefer. West India used FGEX cars were slightly smaller so Jim modified the urethane kit to the represent the series used.

The SFRD reefer is a scratchbuilt replica of a dry ice car once owned by the company. The model is scratchbuilt from styrene a number of years ago. He used Clover House dry transfers for markings. The silver and black scheme is a standout in any train.

Thank you for sharing the pictures Jim.

  1. It was in 2006 that I saw Jim’s craftsmanship firsthand at a Naperville, IL RPM Meet. I still recall the model he displayed there. It was a CB&Q 40′, SS, Extended Height, Door & a Half box car. Then I knew for sure I would move to O-Scale and P:48 modeling. Since then I have seen the work of many great modelers on Gene’s Blog who continue to inspire me and confirm my move to this fantastic scale was the right one.
