Ambroid's GN wood express reefer had silk screened sides. Later,
Northeastern sold the kit with decals.

interest (I may even think now how to apply some ice hatches!).

My recollection is that the kit included silk screened sides, unusual
for Ambroid but common for Mainline and similar kits.

I believe the "old" Walthers company (run by the original WKW) offered
Unicel decals, probably printed when Eisenhower was president.
