    Beautiful kitbash.
    What decals did you use?

    • Dan Bourque says:

      Thanks, Tom! It’s been 20 years, but the bulk of the decals were from a basic Microscale Southern Freight Car set. A lot of the details were cobbled from other miscellaneous sets, and there’s a little bit of “scribble” from a tiny brush to simulate some of the finer print.
