Good start -- and obviously you can print another set to get the E.
I have a couple of questions about Ghost White decals
-- What printers can use them? In particular, only laser printers, which tend to be more expensive and larger footprint
on a desk?
-- Can the Ghost White toner be inserted when needed and replaced with black for normal use?

Subject: [RealSTMFC] Weekend paint and decal project
Friday night, I had some leftover Tru Color paint in my airbrush cup after painting my pulp racks, so I pulled out an
Ertl low side gon project car, removed trucks and deck, then painted it black. I had a steam era image from 1929 showing
a Southern gondola during construction work at Duke University. So I put together some graphics in Adobe Illustrator to
match on Sunday and printed the decal sheet. Tonight I applied the decals. I was in too much of a hurry and screwed up
the E, but I managed to finish the whole car on all sides. I added Tahoe trucks and I need to replace some grabs and
stirrup steps, but I think it came out decent. Next one will have corner gussets, vertical brake wheel, scale couplers,
and proper K brakes. But at least now I have one more example for my presentation on Ghost White decals at the
Greensburg RPM meet. See you at my talk 4pm Saturday. The car will be on display.
