Arrowhead’s Committee Design Hopper in 1990 (and late-1960s)

Though the “new” date on the new DRGW hopper by Arrowhead Models is 1966, the Committee Design hopper can earn its keep into the 1990s.

B. Smith has revised and weathered one side of his Arrowhead hoppers to depict DRGW cars in service in 1990.

These cars are extremely realistic and look really great close up as well.

Arrowhead Models has really led off with a winner!
