|My finished tool car on the WRD layout.
I just finished my recent upgrade of an Accurail 36' Fowler boxcar. It came lettered CV which was not correct. I painted out the CV and used a patchwork of CNR decals and dry transfer. The boxcar colour is a tone between Floquil boxcar red and tuscan red. I just brushed on a bit of tuscan and although the colour is dark it will blend in with the Panpastels....George Dutka
|The lettering is a mix of CDS dry transfers and various decals. The tool car decal came from Walthers set.
|My finished model resting on the prototype photo which is above the model.
|The car below the model is also a Fowler 36' boxcar.
|Once completed I realized that I did not add the end stirrups by the ladder. So some resin ones are used.
|I did not like how the brake rod looks so I added some chain while I added the stirrup.
|A bit of touch-up paint with a brush and the model is done.
