One thing you can do is get a Red Caboose Mather reefer and put Tichy decals on it.  The Life-Like (Varney) reefer is a Swift prototype though it has been offered in Oscar Mayer lettering. MDC also offered some Oscar Mayer shorty reefers that can be reasonable stand-ins.

Hi All,

I'm looking to start a build project to model refrigerated cars that wore the Oscar Mayer Paint schemes in the mid 1950's
I would like to get your input on the following:

  • Sources for reference material
  • Photos
  • Accurate models or good starting point suggestions.

Thank You,
