Sunshine G1 gondolas

It's been about 20 years since I built these, and looking at them now
I can see I used a mix of decal sets for these.  I went with the 24"
lettering, mostly because the larger letters look great on these low
side cars.

The key with these kits is to sand the sides to exactly the same
length and height, and sand their ends perfectly square to the tops.
I made some simple wood shapes to hold resin car sides square to the
table top when sanding their edges.
