Re: NYC freight car lettering

The guy who made the masters for these cars told me that the
version of this car available at Naperville is good only for
the Gothic lettering as these cars were rebuilt starting in
1955. The earlier rebuilds of these cars that would have had
the Roman lettering have not been released yet
Kit 93.1 says "Panel Rf, Roman Decals". Are you saying that this is a
bogus model? It appears to match the photos for the Roman lettered car
in the PDS. Note that it is a rect panel roof, not diagonal so it
appears to model cars rebuilt prior to WWII.
