  I'm not familiar with the Quality Craft kit.  How similar is it to the the
Athearn 86-foot high cubes?
  My 1997 Walthers catalog shows some cast metal high cube doors available
from Alexander Scale Models on page 785.
  It reads, "PLUG DOORS PKG (2) EA. 1.10."  Does that mean one would need 2
packages for each car with a total of 4 doors?
  Another problem is that when I dug out an old pair of their Superior Plug
Doors about a year ago, they struck me as being so crude that I figured I
could probably build a more passable version from scratch.
