|My finished model sitting on the Morning Sun boxcar view I used for decal placement.|
I am glad I waited as back then I only had the data on the decal package to work from. I borrowed Peter's Morning Sun book of D&H rolling stock which had some nice shots of the car. I found that the car had the tall ladders shortened and brake wheel lowered. So the ladders are cut and brake wheel and end platforms are added. The decal used is Herald King B-341. I then dulcoted the car and weathered it using Pan Pastel white on the body and some Bragdon powders on the ends, trucks and underframe. Now it is ready for service when my modern fleet comes out.
|My Robin's Rail model is in service. Floquil reefer yellow and black ends are used. I bent cut levers, added brake chain and bleed rod to my model.|
|A tag is added to the tack board and some light Bragdon powder is added to the roof and on and around the doors.|
