It's better then my 1st attempt. I can see you improve as you go. You make mistakes and try not to make them again. It's very hard to get the masking tape secure against the car's support ribs. Maybe paint the ribs by hand later on but before adding the letter and number decals. Maybe your better off just painting the whole patch by hand then adding the decals. Anyway I see Athrean now has cars with the patch look. That maybe be my next buy?
Back in the early 70's I use to switch cars for 12 hours at the Elmsford, NY A&P warehouse in a building like the one in the model photo. The building had exhaust vents but your head was spinning leaving the place. I hated going there. Good thing it was only once in a while.

Getting some advice from another modeling railroad site I ordered some Miroscale strips for my future patch projects. I'll post the results when done. I guess the'll be no golf, horse racing other sporting events going on for a while so I be doing more model railroads projects until then.
