your new auto rack panels look really good. Thought these photos may
interest you. This was a pre-decorated MKT enclosed bi-level kit that I
kitbashed into an open car. I drilled out all the "dimples" on the Walthers
plastic panels then mounted them. It took about 1.5 to 2 hours per panel; I
think about 12,000 holes in all! (your panels weren't yet out).
Regardless, the photos illustrate that it is a relatively simple task to
modify the Walthers body to get that "see-through" prototypical look. And
compared to the effort of drilling out all the holes in the plastic panels,
your etched panels are a bargain! Hopefully I will get to do a couple
additional kitbashes with your panels.
