SP Auto Car

 The Southern Pacific had Standard Steel car company build 500 single sheathed automobile cars for them in 1921. Built with 10'5" door openings, they were widened to either 12'0" or 12'6" in 1934.  Some went to the  T&NO while the rest stayed with the SP.  The model is built from the excellent Speedwitch Media resin kit.  The car is mostly stock, apart from a few brake component etchings, although I did scratch built new end ladders.  Paint is Scalecoat Boxcar Red #2. Weathering is washes, dry brushing, acrylics and Pan Pastels. This car was delight to build.
