Another car for the fleet

This Central Vermont single-door 43,000-series raised roof boxcar was built from an F&C resin kit. 
The  car was on the infamous "to do" shelf awaiting decals. I ended up decaling the car at the same time I decaled the SSW box and another of the Sunshine door prize cars (a CB&Q flat). 
I was going for a newly rebuilt car - the single-door 43000-series were rebuilt between 1953 and 1956, which means this car would have had no more than a couple of revenue trips since emerging from the shop in my 1954 era. 
I might add just a little more weathering to the car next time I have a few cars on the modeling desk for weathering since it is a little too "vivid." 
In the meantime it's ready for a revenue assignment.
