I have used it with a brush and Q-tip to debond parts on a painted
model. I wouldn't let it pool or evaporate on the model.

For the SAL B-5, I've combined some of the Speedwitch set for SAL steel boxcars, with Champ data for 40-ton cars. 'Course this may be moot: has Sunshine released their B-5 kit yet? If so, see Jim Hayes's note in this thread.

Subject: [STMFC] Looking for decals

I am currently on a boxcar building binge and I am looking for decals to
complete some specific cars as they roll through the paint shop in the next
couple of months. The cars I am building are HO scale and the period being
modeled is September 1950. I have looked through the available Microscale,
Odball and Champs sets. I can piece together champ decal sets to come up
with much of what I need but if there are specific sets produced from others
that would be a better fit for these particular cars that is even better. I
am looking for decals for the following cars and would appreciate any
suggestions:
Northern Pacific 14000 series double sheathed 40 foot 40 ton boxcar.
Northern Pacific 20000 series single sheathed 40 foot 50 ton boxcar.
SLSF Frisco 14700-14800 series single sheathed 40 foot 50 ton boxcar.
SAL 14000-16000 series B-5 single sheathed 40 foot 50 ton boxcar.
C&O 12000 series Rebuilt Steel 40 foot 40 ton boxcar.
Thanks for any ideas.

I currently have a link to a PDF of Stan's kits and parts list on the Links
page of my Sunshine website. Soon, maybe within a month, I'll have an
updated list with pictures of his models. Stan is like Martin Loftin and
doesn't have a computer. If Stan is doing a model of something that Sunshine
has already done, it's because he believes there's something wrong with the
Sunshine kit,

Re: ACC Debonder and paint finishes.

Denny,
While I've not used debonder on a painted model, I have noticed that when using debonder to remove ACC lumps from the work surface of my bench it does a pretty good job lifting paint splashes as well.
Conclusion, I wouldn't try it on a painted model.

Can anyone provide more information,

A while back I plowed through the archives looking for info on the IMRC R-40-10 IC Reefer, and made notes that info was available at the following message #s: 26216, 26226, 26260, 67836

Shipping is going to be a flat $6.50 up to 5 cars. The decals for the car

Folks,

I was blown away by the fact that the model is set up to allow the Duryea underframe to WORK! (if the modeler choses to do so) I think that is an HO scale production first - isn't it?

The new B&O WT box car is a real piece of work. I hesitated to buy one,
because I'd like to shed my Sunshine and F&C models first. Besides the
flat door was not available with this first batch of kits. I thought the
SAL gon was a real beauty too and may yet buy one.

Come to Trainfest in Milwaukee in a couple weeks and maybe sell me a
couple kits <VBG>

I also bought the new Tangent Gon. I was very tempted to buy the undec and
order some of the Archer rivets to make a different class car. Anyone else
have this idea? I picked up my RP Cyc from Ed at the show which has an
article on these cars. I saw Ed presentation too, which gave me the idea.
Are there decals that will work for these cars?

Paul, I have several photos of these cars, both builder's shots and
in-service, and all show them with AAR U-section cast steel trucks
with spring planks. The Accurail 'Bettendorf" truck recommended by

Illinois Central Reefers was Re: Naperville

pullmanboss <tgmadden@...>
 

My memory is that Sunshine did an IC steel reefer. Martin does sell decals and his PDS would be a source for paint scheme and photos.

Bill Welch
Yes, the one I have is kit #46.18, "IC Steel Reefer, Sq. Ends, 1937-50s Decals". Colors are "yellow-orange sides, black ends, black underframe, silver-gray roof and IC green lettering, herald and side sill striping". The 300 delivered in 1937 had square corner ends, the 200 from 1940 had "W" corner ends.

I picked up two IC kits, the series 50000-50229 and 50300-50499.
Stan indicated that these were built in 1938 and 1941 respectively.
My ORER indicates 229 and 200 cars respectively, reporting marks "IC".

Can anyone provide more information, and perhaps an indication of
where I might find some photos? The directions with the kits have no
prototype information and little to none on what accessories these
cars had. I'd also love to know what color to paint them ("yellow"?)
and if there are any decals currently available (Stan indicated that
Jim Singer might be releasing some).

BTW, these kits are resin sides and ends or just resin sides
(depending on the car) that fit an IM reefer "core" and are available
with or w/o fans (I went w/o)
