Weathering Wednesday #005

Most, if not all, of the newer boxcar models seem to have their doors moulded into the body so that the whole thing is one-piece.  This Atlas car has been available for many years, featuring double doors that actually open or close, which presents a slightly different modelling or weathering opportunity.

The outside of the boxcar is rusted and scarred, but with the doors open we are also able to get a glimpse of the inside. Black steel banding still stretched across the opposite side doorway, and on the floor more banding, scraps of cardboard and plastic packaging, and even an old piece of two-by-four litter the inside of this car.
