I think he meant the tiny "air pockets" visible in your photo. I
recently discussed this - it can be fixed prior to an overcoat
and additional decal solvent, but afterwards - not so much.
It doesn't detract from your model! I HAVE this B&O
Intermountain flat car so
I will be looking at your instructions for the equipment locker.

I don’t understand your comment re: a
“shadow” around the decal edges. Nothing shows up on my
images and except in 1 spot where a little white from an
adjoining decal was included when I cut from a sheet. The
posted image, being low rez, might be slightly distorted.
I’ve attached a close up of lettering but also low rez just
to be emailable. I don’t seen any “shadow” around lettering
that you asked about. Maybe I’m missing something?
The car was painted Floquil Grimy black
with 10% gloss added and the thin-film decals nestled in
quickly with diluted Solvaset, then full-strength Solvaset
on the 2nd application. The
car was oversprayed with Rustoleum Frosted Clear, when
weathering applied in multiple layers on top of that. No
clear coat was applied after dusting simply because the
coating obliterates the powders.
These cars were used to haul
plasterboard (“sheet rock”) and the loads were wrapped in
Gold Bond orange and white sheets. I’m planning to create
this load and present it to the B&O Modeler staff as a
follow up article.
