Re: WP 1947 Paint Scheme
Garth Groff <sarahsan@...>
The color of the original Roundhouse models was a good match for the rich red-oxide paint the WP favored up until the early 1950s. If your cars came painted and lettered for WP, you should try to match that. If you are working with undecorated models, or from some other road, good luck. If you own a copy of Jim Eager's WESTERN PACIFIC COLOR GUIDE, take a look at the lower of the two 40' boxcars on page 19 and make your own match. There is a color photo of one of the 50' cars on page , but to my eye it looks like the colors in the photo have shifted. Also check Fred Jantz's article at http://blog.resincarworks.com/western-pacific-50-foot-automobile-box-car/ .
