Yeah, it looks like it, in this case.

One way in which the Starline car is better than the GC one is that the side rivets are more obvious.

The GC ones are just about invisible. Based on multiple photos in Rail Model Journal of real AAR 1937 cars, I'd contend that this isn't really right ... one of those rare instances when the detail is underscale rather than overscale. Tends to usually be the other way around.

When I mentioned that Starline was better I meant ladders and grabirons. The size of the rivets is only a minor detail.
