WM #63799

Here is my version of Western Maryland 100 ton 3 bay hopper #63799. Since I couldn't find a photo of this exact car number, I used a photo of a similar hopper from 1988 as a guide. To weather this, I used a combination of pan pastels and acrylic washes. The interior was spray painted with the Rustoleum Camoflage. I used Microscale trim film and decals to black out the old data and add new re-weigh data and lube plates. The new shop date information was made by using individual letters and numbers from a Gothic number and letter sheet, lots of fun as my eyes get older!
