Re-spray & decal fun

Post by BrianMoore » Sun May 12, 2013 3:04 pm

I completed three small projects in the last few days. Firstly, I finally got around to decalling and finishing my brass SP C-40-3 caboose:

Secondly, I resprayed this Walthers SP C-30-1, which had the post-1955 lettering and orange ends; too early for my 1954-era Coast Line layout (I only noticed that less-than-perfect "5" after I took the pic):

Lastly, this Atlas tank car was silver, and lettered for a NY-based company, so I resprayed it, and used my partner Jane's surname to create a small California-based fuel company, Filby Oils. The company letters are from UP sheets, the silver lines and shapes from a Santa Fe switcher sheet, and the and reporting data from a tank car sheet, all Microscale:

As always, thanks for looking.

Thank you for your support at this difficult time, Mr Boyask... I think I must have brushed it with one of my fingers after I applied the Micro Sol. but, as you say, worse things happened on the real railroad. I've a picture somewhere of a real Cab Forward fresh from the shops, in service, and lettered "Southern Pacfic".

Excellent work Brian. What size and quality are the original photos? Have got possible use for one of a caboose if it's high enough quality.

Thanks, Mike.

I'll send you one of SP 1205, but not the one above of SP 315, and you can decide.
