Does anybody know how to make the cupola roof grab irons for the CF caboose kit from LaserKits?  The instructions say it is tedious but make no verbal attempt to show how.  There is wire in the kit and it says it will take multiple pieces...I am pretty lost and want to build these kits but without grab irons it won't look right.
Also, what does brake rigging look like if there is no air cylinder?  The instructions say they didn't have automatic brakes (or something) which to me means that it didn't have air brakes at first.  I thought this would be an interesting thing to model.Any ideas?Thank you,Mike Shockley
