Mark--

This car could have had a lot finer detail. I find the rivets especially oversize.
But C-D-S set HO-1 will letter this car nicely and accurately as built in 1956/57--

Use ModelFlex Light Tuscan Oxide or Scalecoat Oxide Red for a car that will be seen under layout lighting, or Scalecoat CN #11 Red for an accurate CN car colour as built. True Line Trains also offers a CN Red # 11.

Hope that this helps,

Steve Lucas.

National Steel Car 40' Boxcar w/8' door, NSC-3 ends,NSC roof.

Suggestions on decals? Bought this on ebay and was surprised at the lack of detail for price. Appears to have possibilities.

Any ideas and thanks in advance.
