An amazingly well done kit. Have not yet started mine but in looking thru the kit box, oh what a departure from the "gutless wonder" Dragon kits with zero underbody or framing detail!

Michael, the kit decals, are they just WWII Reichsbahn or is there some DB, Deutschebahn, decals also for post WWII? The box art says 2 sets. I hope one is Cold War !

Sabre does provide two different sets of decals marked in the instructions as Set A and Set B. However I can find no explanation anywhere in the instructions as to which set should be used where; geographically, or what time period in history they might represent. (Wartime or Post War?????)

Interestingly both sets of decals provide two car numbering options so you could build two models of this car without repeating the same ID number.

As far as I know, both sets of decals are for wartime wagons

Dang it!!! Seeing that these flat cars were in use until the 90's that's 50 years of post war service. Leo 1's, Marders, maybe some other types of armor too with no transport. That's a shame !

Yes, but they had some modifications over the time so it may not be used as is for, say, the 70's

Not sure also if some of the markings could be re-used.
