Arved have you tried a new scalpel blade used lightly should do what you require.

In between a lot of other projects (lately, mostly learning Adobe Illustrator so I can produce my own decals for Southern Pacific GS gondolas), I finally got around to spraying Mr. Base White 1000 as a primer on my 40' Rock Island PS-1 box car last night. For the record, thinned 50/50 with MEK, I think the MEK was a bit too "hot" resulting in a very rough and grainy finish. I loaded up the airbrush with clean lacquer thinner to try to reflow the primer and get a smoother finish. Long story short, I think I was successful.

The car I started with was a 10-panel welded side car. The 1948 built PS-1s for Rock Island were 12 panel riveted side cars. I smoothed out the weld beads, and I have Archer Transfers for panel lines and rivets.

How should I mark construction lines on the car so I can lay out the panel lines and rivets where they're supposed to be?

Pencil was my first thought, but I'm worried about adhesion of the Archer Transfers over the graphite. Has that been a problem with anyone else who's drawn construction lines with pencil? If so, what alternatives do I have? My only other thought is to score the primer with the point of a knife/blade, but I'm not thrilled with that idea. An ultra-fine tip Sharpie doesn't seem fine enough - even if I sharpen the tip further, the ink tends to bleed.

So (the point of this post is) I am open to ideas.

If Swift shipped the acid,
which of these tanks cars would be the best candidate to
model the outbound shipments?John Cizmar

To
follow up on Gary’s question: where was acid
produced? 

 The Swift fertilizer plant in
Calumet City, IL made sulfuric acid. The Pennsylvania Salt
Mfg. Co. made hydrochloric acid and ferric chloride in
Wyandotte MI, Natrona, PA and Tacoma, WA. They both shipped
by tank car. Regards...Jerry Albin
