Grain Hopper Roof Crud

Grain Hopper Roof Crud

  • RCH
Yes! The rarely modeled stinky rotten crud at the tops of covered hoppers. You can see how it has caked and basically broken off of the car roof. Nice how it just hangs there off the side. Also, notice the hatches - they are fiberglas, not metal! Look closely at the photo and please stop rusting your hatches! :)

I am now modeling an area that receives grain trains for all the local dairies, this attention to detail is important.
