I am also doing the origami necessary for the little brackets for the end placard boards. As I look at the prototype photos in the instructions however it appears the metal straps or tabs extend from the bottom edge of the placard board in the conventional method but the top the straps appear to extend from the top vertical edges, which is not conventional but a very interesting detail I would like to model if true. Can anyone speak to this?
Bill, I have looked at a number of photos of SP cars in this era and cannot see anything strange or different about the end placard board attachments.
