I am experimenting right now with "tromp

watercolor pencils to simulate that horseshoe-shaped bulging that abused
service gons get, particularly in the center panels. I also used
colors to simulate dents, by pecking the surface. I think it has merit.
Has anyone experimented with this at all?
You could make a decal from a color photo, and apply that. I *thought*
there was an article on doing this in a recent MR (a light green caboose,
IIRC) but I can't find the reference in the online index.
