B&O CHESSIE paint peeling hopper!

B&O CHESSIE paint peeling hopper!

After several months of inactivity on this forum, I can't believe there are only a couple additional postings in this section!?!? I've made a few cars since my last visit in April but this one is a bit unusual. CSX has many old CHESSIE hoppers where the paint has almost completely come off...some with CSX patches and others with no patch at all. This model has the original B&O reporting mark. All that gray stuff is supposed to be primer. I've learned to scale down my pictures. I apologize for all those huge pictures in the past...they are annoying. I'll try to post a few more cars.
