The purpose of these Freight Car Models books, and of Railmodel Journal (the magazine in which all these articles were first published), is to provide modelers with photographs of the precise prototypes for specific model kits. The Athearn and MDC box cars are two good examples: Nearly all the paint schemes seen on pre-painted verof these cars never appeared on cars withthe dimensions and surface details of these models. Many of Atheam's own paint schemes back in the era of metal kits were carried over to the new line of plastic kits in the Sixties, and most of those lettering schemes were for box cars a scale half-foot lower than Athearn's. The new Innovative Model Works HO scale cars and InterO scale cars (see pages 60-63) are accurate models of the cars those paint schemes were actually applied to.
