40-foot steel milk reefer, Erie (ERIE 6720).
This started with the Atlas ARA 1932 boxcar with Vulcan roof and Buckeye ends. The
sides were milled down to remove the detail and create an insert for etched brass reefer
sides designed to fit the model. Door details and BLMA grab irons were added along with
the stock ladders and brakewheel. The body was painted pullman green and decorated
with limited-run decals from Eastern Seaboard Models. The truck frames are resin castings
of a master kitbashed by Chris Schmuck, with Fox Valley wheelsets installed.
The car was sprayed with Testors Dullcote and weathered with pastels.
