Great job Charlie, it has the look of a car really earning its keep.

I like to support the ARM’s fund raising and bought one of their FW&D IM covered hoppers.  Given the previous discussions on this list that the roof and lower portion of the hopper were painted black I used Vallejo black and brush painted these areas.  Referencing a prototype image I initially streaked white oil paint down the side panels and around the roof hatches.   After drying I airbrushed a wash of TruColor white.
