Re: Throwback Thursday: Ambroid Western Union Material Car

I built this model when it came out.  I was 11.  I was very annoyed, though, because my dad and I went to the hobby shop to get the specified paint color (Pullman Green?) and apparently for a short time Floquil combined Pullman Greet and Coach Green in to a paint that was neither.  Consequently, my car appears to have been a repaint around the lettering on the pre-lettered sides.  Every once in a while I think I should get a matching paint and fix that . . . 60 years later . . .
