Re: Latest run of Intermountain (Wegmann) HO PFE Rebuilt Reefers
Most Chinese assembled cars are pre-painted and glued with CA, so a little bit of torque will break the glue bonds. Disassembling a model is not difficult.
For those wanting to know what the correct lettering looks like for any era, the PFE painting and lettering book that I wrote and illustrated is still available:
While it is titled Southern Pacific, about 40% of the book is PFE.
FWIW, I redrew all seven lettering schemes for these cars about two years ago and gave that artwork to InterMountain. The previous artwork had the incorrect UP medallion for the -19 and -21 single medallion cars, among other errors. So, whether any of my new artwork was used for this current run of cars, I cannot say, since I have not seen any of these latest cars up close. If you think you are frustrated ...
