I agree 100%! Same for models/kits. I don't know where the hell to look for stuff anymore now that the forum has gotten bigger.

I took for the PVM combo door car this UP paint scheme. I like the map "automated railway" and the big logo. I have chosen the fresh paint, like out of the factory, with no weathering. The N-Decals are from Microscale.

The UP MoW scheme is also nice. Mint green with black lettering.

Thank you. The first one is good.
The MOV version would require a UP layout.

Thank you for your help!

Here is a new case:
I have got some old hoppers with wooden sides. One type is standard gauge (12mm) and the other one is narrow gauge (9mm). The sides look similar, but are not the same.
Both types are made of metal. The narrow gauge ones are painted already in rusty color, they can stay like that. The standard gauge ones are grey (primer?) and I need to make decals for them. Length of the model is 75.8 mm (30' prototype)

1. Do you know who manufactured the models?
2. What was the prototype and which railroads used them?

It looks to me like a kinda foobie representation of the War Emergency hopper, which was used by a fairly large number of roads. Including, off the top of my head, the B&O (and thus relevant to my interests!).

Thank you.
I tried to search the internet and this is what I found:
the sides are different, but quite close. Maybe they had a differnt type?
