On top of that, the version produced by F&C appears to mimic the mistake
made by the previous NWSL brass J&L 20,000 gallon tanks... that silver

paint job" done to highlight the details. The few pictures of operational
J&L tanks in this series appear to show black cars with white lettering

I don't know if the model comes with those decals as well, but so far I
have seen no evidence of it.
Aw, heck, Bruce, can't you just put the decals into Photoshop and invert the image?
