The worst part of those kits are the decals, raised from an iffy photo from the Whittaker collection. The thin film is nice, but the artwork sucketh to the purist.
They were in the 45000-45999 series. Most kept the original spartan lettering, but after April 1942 many got the Phoebe billboard and the AB brakes while being repainted.
in your era of 1950 some were still in service but falling quickly as steel cars were arriving in big numbers.
The attached photo has some motion blur, but shows the billboard lettering. CDS and Prime Mover decals offers the best artwork for these, using vintage typefaces.
Would enjoy seeing a photo of the finished car.
