On it's last legs

  1. Here's a couple of pics I took of a short bay-window work caboose that I completed tonight. I was going for a real dilapidated look, as though it's soon heading for the scrapyard.

    It was created from an old shorty caboose I had and a flat car. The railings are Athearn loco stantions with copper wire, and I used Boxcar Red paint and some MP decals I had, along with some heavy weathering. I envision this as being the prototype of what MP would later refine to create the numerous short bay window cabooses to populate their line.

    If you just completed it, why does it look like it's been in service for 20 years? Nice weathering job, how'd you do it?
