After building car #6201, I went ahead and built the other 6200 series flat car kit I had, car #6217. I did a couple things different on this car. Instead of using the plastic turnbuckle assembly included in the kit, I used brass turnbuckles instead. I also painted the deck differently. While I still used the "smoke" colored Vallejo paint, I didn't use as much. Then I painted on a couple washes of Modelflex weathered black instead of the ink. I got more of a weathered wood look that I think looks better.
Since I'm in a flat car mode, I think I'll start on the two 6300 series flat car kits I have on the shelf.
