45-foot Fruehauf trailer, Burlington Northern (BNZ 233304).
I started with an undecorated Micro-Trains 45-foot trailer, airbrushed the body in stencil
white, then masked off the frame, door hinges and electrical areas and airbrushed those
areas and the roof bright silver. I highlighted all marker lights with Testors Turn Signal
Orange or Stop Light Red, whichever was appropriate. I decorated the model with
Micro-Scale "BN Innovative Intermodal Service" decals, and oversprayed with a satin clear
coat finish. the wheel bogie hardware and the tires were painted flat black, while
the hubs and trailer stand were painted a gloss gray. The mud flap logos were
highlighted in white. The car was weathered lightly by with pastels, then the
diesel exhaust residue on the roof and upper front corners was airbrushed with a black
wash until the desired build-up was achieved.
