A trick that is very useful is to use clear plastic rulers, triangles and squares such as the ones in protractor sets that you can buy for school use. I had learned many years ago to make a drilling template for installing grab irons on freight car kits.

I managed to get it done only to discover that the pipes for the air brakes interfered with the trucks swivelling.

I tried cutting one out and it prompty disintegrated as soon as diluted Micro Set decal solution touched it. The drilling template was made on a scrap of styrene using the measurements and placement from the Ambroid instruction sheet. As this was sort of a trip down nostalgia lane I decided to stick to brushes.I had bought sets of decals for my Utopia Northern back in the late '60s.
I found a PollyScale green that was a pretty good match for other UNRR passenger equipment (I had written down what I had used previously but I couldn't find my notes.) The roof and bottom were done with Engine Black. I drilled these by hand instead of using my Dremel so I could control the placement better.
I didn't have anything that said "postal storage" and the data is not correct for this car.
The end result was OK but not great.This was a wood kit that was supposed to resemble metal sheathing.
I keep a sheet of glass in a picture frame for use when cutting decals for freight car kits. I use an NMRA metal ruler (not a plastic ruler) and a sharp one-edge razor blade.The decals were applied with tweezers, an X-Acto blade and Micro Set thinned with tap water.


I don't know how modellers (me included) used to apply the wire with the glues then available. The instructions were to cut some grooves in the wood siding and glue the cut wire into the grooves. It is nearly impossible to cut them first and get them to line up and slitting them when they are wet will only destroy them.
I let them dry in place and then used a razor blade to slit them along the edge of the wires followed by several more applications of Micro Set to get them to snuggle down. When dry, I brushed on some Pan Pastel chalks to complete the weathering and gave the car a final spary of Dull Coat. The car, a little battered and worse for wear, is now in service.I have said from the beginning that I am only an average model railroader, not an expert craftsman. Certainly building freight car kits like this Ambroid Postal Service car tested my ability severely and it surely renewed my respect for those who enter their work in NMRA contests!
