A really nice job. I would assume a RTR 6ft door car? Again great model.

Yes, Kadee only makes the 1948 carbody in the 6’ RTR version.  I had to remove the door tracks and replace with Evergreen styrene and Archer rivets.

Correction:
Ed Hawkins reminded me Kadee also made a 1948-49 carbody with a 7’ door decorated as New Haven 3 years ago and has since been out of production.  Obviously the 6’ version was easier to locate for my Seaboard conversion.

Tangent makes a 1948 PS-1 car body with a 14 foot door opening now. This is for a rebuild of the
6 foot door PS-1 so the prototype did just what Charlie did to the Kadee model.

The Tangent cars have the end door though so that’s problematic.

             Thanks for the info on your car. It's a model that I would like to some day build.

Being a Mopac modeler I missed the obvious and Tom Christensen alerted me to my mistake. In 1948 the Seaboard logo was changed from Railway to Railroad. I had a 50/50 change of picking the right logo as I wasn’t paying attention closely to the prototype photos.  Anyway I put Tamiya tape over the decal, smoothed it down with my finger nail and pulled it up.  Replaced with the correct logo.  Will gloss over it and Dullcote.

How lucky you are Charlie!  WhenI do that correction requres a jack hammer and a pack of sandpaper.

Here’s the Seaboard Railroad replacement emblem.  Once I pulled up the railway version I had a glossy circle where the old decal was.  I just cut closely to the replacement one with a small scissors and single edge razor blade so I knew it would fit.  Laid down some Microsol Red let it dry, hit with gloss to hide the edges and once it dried a light coat of my custom Dullcote mix to match the rest of the decals.

Hi Charlie
          Thanks for the info. I never thought of using tape to remove a decal. What a great tip. You did a great job replacing the herald.
