CN 40ft Insulated Boxcar - Part 2
After a short discussion with fellow modellers about the heater box and new prototype pictures shared, I was able to refine the boxcar details. I modified the heater box and installed it further back. New steel straps were made and this time, correctly secured on the car underframe and not the floor.
It's more closer to prototype and thus I felt it was ready to receive a generous coat of boxcar brown paint.
I'm a little bit nervous about using dry transfer on such a large scale (wet noodle logo). Hope it will turn out well. Seems I'll have to read a little bit about that before trying it out on the model.
