Wow Charlie, it really looks nice.  Well done!!  I remember driving around Fla in the early 1960's and seeing many FGEX reefers stored on sidings and no two were the same color yellow.

This is my version of the mini-kit that I missed out on.  Accurail wood reefer body; queen posts from my parts bin, Champ Blue Ribbon FGE decals (the Speedwitch ones just wouldn’t lay in the groves).  Tru-Color ART yellow and Dullcoat with a drop of brown.   A few boards picked out with a brown pencil and white pencil used to denote salt around the hatches.  Do to the issue with the Speedwitch decal this sat in my shelf of doom for a couple years.  I finally used decal remover, resprayed the yellow and finished it today
