ATSF 50' class FeQ double door double sheathed wood box car

A year or so ago I acquired a kit built resin 50'  ATSF class FeQ box car.  At the time I knew very little about the prototype other than I liked it's distinctive  looks.  I knew from the lettering style and single side grab iron that the model was configured in the prototype's as built configuration.  My original plan was to update it for service on my circa 1952 railroad by adding a second grab iron and revising the lettering to reflect later standards.  In researching ATSF practice I learned that the entire roster of FeQ box cars were stripped down to the underframe in company shops during WWII and rebuilt with all steel bodies.  This makes the model way out of era for my railroad so I've decided to sell it. 

Does anyone know who produced the kit?  I'd like to know so I can properly describe it in a listing.
