Modeling the N-20
Atlas wide vision caboose. Add flag brackets, center side window is a little small. The Athearn wide vision is close but the roof panels are the wrong style. Several other manufacturers make this car but I have only examined these two.

This is a brass model make by Overland Models for "Modern Models" and painted by Bill Lane for S-Helper Service, Inc.
Also check out the new release from S-Helper Service, Inc. an ICC Extended Vision Caboose. While not an exact replica, it is available in a CR scheme.

Other scales?
Any tips would be appreciated!
