Here's one of my cars. It's a standard Bachmann 1:22 boxcar. Only modifications were lowering the end walks to conform to the roofline, metal wheels and the addition of Kadee couplers.



Car was painted entirely with Bondo black primer and sides painted over the black with ruddy red primer. Lettering is from 1/4" vinyl alphabet sets. Car was weathered with Krylon Camouflage colors, mainly Brown(actually a dark brown), Medium Brown and Sand Dune. These are all flat earth tone colors from spray cans. Quick and simple and holds up very well outdoors.

If a bit of finer detail is desired such as closer to scale brakewheel, handrails, etc., Ozark makes some very nice ones that are inexpensive.
