Plain Wrap HS Rustbucket

Filed under: General — admin @ 9:45 AM  

This is one more project that didn’t go up for grabs. I needed some fast cash for the upcoming local train swap meet – and threw this boxcar together for an online friend who never wins my auctions. Kind of a win – win for both parties!

Keeping to the ‘lipstick on a pig’ concept, I put a lot of my best shading and rust on a generic low budget boxcar. Then added a handful of authentic graffiti tags that came out really sharp. The Jiffy Pop roof bump is due to forklift drivers who raise the loads too high inside the car. Purists can also find some subtle panel bulges behind the rust scrapes. HS stands for Hartford & Slocomb.
