This Red Caboose kit, originally lettered for a California winery, sat on the shelves of the LHS for several years. Too unusual for southern Ontario, I guess, and, at $35.00, too expensive for me. When I walked in one day and saw an $8.00 price tag on it, I couldn't resist. :thumb:
I stripped and repainted it, then, since it's modelled after a PFE prototype, lettered it with a combination of Champ and Microscale decals.
On your photo of the PFE reefer the UP shield seems to be in 3D. Very well don Doc. frank
Wayne. The PFE reefer is just fine as it is. It looks very good. I do not weather anything.Thanks, Frank.
The colours do seem a little too vibrant in that photo and perhaps a little bit "off", too.
I didn't weather the car too heavily, as it represents one re-built in late 1936, very close to my late '30s modelling era. ;-)
