Re: ACCURAIL separate ladders & grabs

For the 5th Ave Car Shops/Accurai Car and the Needham Packing Sioux City Dressed Beef car (which were both decorated) I simply taped of the marking on the car and used Testors Chrome yellow for a close match to the color. After I recently weathered them both there was no real difference. They will both be in Cocoa Beach on display. I plan to have some 11x14 color photos of the prototype(s) on display for review.

I have recently tried to upgrade an Accurail reefer.All went well until I tried to match the paint.I never knew there were so many different shades of yellow.What would you suggest that I use? Armand Premo

Bill and All,

Off line I sent Wayne a couple of photos of the Shake N Take Accurail
Reefer we did in the past and one that was done later representing the Needham
Packing/Sioux City Dressed Beef car that I did and have had at Cocoa Beach.
These cars are simple (currently have four underframes nearly completed on
the bench) and the results are better than average. Never having built a
resin kit I have finished I suffer from a comparison issue. I nearly finished
a Roller Bearing Models resin Troop Sleeper but gave it to a friend
before it was finished. Shame on me, well perhaps.

I will likely never finish all the styrene kits that I have in my "stash".
