need to find grundy Railbox

I'm looking for a heavily weathered Railbox in the new scheme.  There are plenty of old scheme examples on the Internet, but the new ones look too clean (save for some graf here and there).

Kluke?

What do you mean by "New Scheme"?

bunch of Railbox shots in various scheme's.

I think it's post 1993.  The one with the small blue/red arrows on the right.

Tom,
This is the best I can come up with in that particular scheme.

Thanks, that is pretty wild graffiti.  I guess that more rusty examples just don't exist yet.

While there are some good grafitti decals out there - they usually cover these
"works of art" (cough, cough) - it would be nice to have some sets of the
mindless, undecipherable garbage that seems to fill in between the "masterworks"...

This one's seen better days. But I know what you're looking for and that's like finding a needle in a hay stack! I'll have to look at home later if I remember...

Did several sets
for friends in black and white signatures, gang tags and the like awhile ago.  Unfortunately most modelers really want specific stuff, even if it is undecipherable to most of us...
Support fine modeling

That thing looks like it was abandoned in a hurricane zone for 10 years.

I guess you already have your winner, but I think I have a few of what you're looking for, just not very grundy.

How about a compromise? Half and half?




This is about the worst I could find...
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Do you guys have *any* railcars left that aren't covered in graffiti?
