Re: Decals for SFRD (Santa Fe) 50' reefers

I did this kit ages ago when I thought that information on instruction sheet was straight from the burning Bush.  I wound up with a car that was yellow yellow.  Nowhere near color of the Santa Fe refers.  The kit supplied decals seemed to be accurate.

Later a resin kit was done for me and I supplied Chsmp Blue Ribbon decals.  For the Grand Canyom Line lettering there are two lettering arrangements.  The one I wanted was not in the set but was in the Microscale set.  The builder had lettered the car for all but the slogan at this point.  I recall his comment that he wished he had the Microscale set to begin with as the fit was better.

I don't know if the Microscale set covers tie 50' cars.

I'm doing 2 Ambroid kits now and would love to find these decals also. I'm not sure if the factory decals were correct, I didn't get them w/the used, partialyy built ones I bought. Bill W, Homewood, Il.
