MODELING: Correction on Zwernemann Stock Car

zmann stock closeup

The last posting had a photo of a Rails Unlimited stock car that Jim Zwernemann did his magic on.  I missed some detail changes like cutting the original door off and replacing it with a styrene door.  The majority of the pictures Jim found showed vertical slats.  Jim also thinned the roof by 50% and notched the roof edge to give the appearance of individual boards.  The weathering was done with acrylics and actual distressing of the decal with an Xacto knife.   The effects are dramatic and effective.

The Milwaukee Road stock car was depicted in several Car Builder Cyclopedia.  I have enclosed a page from a CBC reprint.
