Great looking build. And love the steel door conversion -- the wood-side/steel door look has always struck me as a cool combination.

Sweet work, Clark.

 

Does anyone know if the GN painted roof and ends black when these cars were built?

I built a ton of cars the first five months of the year. This is the only car I’ve worked on since. A normal pace  ;  ))

Since then I’ve picked up a couple kits off eBay and traded with friends for a couple others. So, I now have a slight cushion to boredom when cold weather hits. This Westerfield kit came as wood door and a half Auto car. The instructions shows a version with a 6’ steel door I decided to buy a 6’ steel door and the correct decals to change the car for Westerfield to make the conversion. The body was painted with Tru-color paints, I used Scalecoat on the underframe and trucks. Weathering Prismacolor pencils and Pan Pastels.

All of the cars in that series that didn't have end doors where rebuilt in 1940ish to 6ft doors cars.
