Jerry -

I just completed four of those cars using data from the Oddballs Decal sheet and data from an article by Martin Loftin in May 1994 Model Railroader. I took Loftin's measurements and drew a diagram on a file card.

Great choice for a project. You've really got to want that car to do all the measuring, masking, waiting for the paint to dry, and tedious decaling.
