Re: cooper black italic font on railroad cars


I don't think Kadee uses it's own decals. Since the topic of using ALPS printed decals came up, I thought I'd note that Kadee offers this as well as other options. Here's their page on custom ALPS decals:

I can't imagine that they'd be any worse than anybody else's ALPS decals, especially at the price. I have considered them for my custom decals, but after a couple sheets, alternatives become more cost effective.

I do not recommend Kadee decals, unless you want your white letters

make extra SP PS-2 hoppers, but I'll be using Microscale instead.

Kadee will also do small run decals:

Microscale and Rail Graphics will do larger runs.
