Re: decals


I have some ancient Champ decals; the envelope is marked "HO/OO".  This may explain the size discrepancy.

I hope it at least made some OO scale modelers happy.

That's an experience many have had--trying to fit Champ
lettering onto a model while comparing to a prototype photo, and
finding it won't fit in the same space. I once heard the theory that
Max Gray (an O scale guy at heart) had made everything in HO oversize
because he had some Silver Streak HO kits, which are also mostly
oversize, around 10 percent, which is about the error in several Champ
sets I struggled with. But that's probably just conjecture <g>.
