    As I did in the December contest, I had a back up car in case the primary car didn't work out. Here is the one I had for the January contest.

    Started with a Micro-Trains 50 modern box car.

    Here is the prototype reference photo I was going by.

    Side one of finished car.

    Side two of finished car.

    On this car I did a minimum amount graffiti.

    I think that is actually a good idea. Maybe not for a contest, but for MY transition era railroad. Hobo marks and WWII era chalk markings seem like a good way to individualize some cars in the days before spray cans and youth run amuck. Wondering if we would be able to do those without resorting to commercial decals.

    Cars done by badlandnp fit into this idea. See post #52 above.
