Last week at the Colorado Springs TECO show, I picked up this brass HOn3 Precision Scale model of RGS caboose 0401. This caboose was unique because of the ladder extensions that no other RGS caboose had. Anyway, the original paint this came (top) with was problematic in several ways. Besides being poorly and overly weathered, the logo should have been aluminum rather than white, and that scheme was applied to 0401 in 1949, two years outside the era I model. I painted it a lighter color, lettered it for the early 1940s, and gave it a light airbrush weathering.
