Re: B&O boxcar red


I use PollyS Special Oxide Red 414354. Then after decaling, I use light
vertical brush strokes with testors dulcote (it often makes the decals run, just
like the real letters chalk). Then a light overspray with very thin oxide
red again and a little grime.

Thanks Fred.

Good advice, and I'll check into it.

Perhaps the question I should also have asked is for color photos of &O
boxcars. Recognizing that colors can come through odd on the web,
seeing some next to other cars might provide some idea of how to go
with this.
