Rivarossi paint failure

Just curious. I have re-purchased.

I had this Santa Fe observation car in storage a few years in a commercial cardboard storage box along with the rest of the set.

I glanced through the box and noticed this paint failure. The factory paint just disintergrated down to the base, and it smeared with my fingertip.

The rest of the box was fine, like I expected.

Any ideas

You can still do a lot with that as is, bit of track, some servicing scaffolding, couple of painters and assorted tools, small fresh unpainted timber......?
