Getting decals printed

Marty McGuirk
 

Can anyone recommend a custom decal printer they have had a positive experience with? I've got some HO scale artwork I need to have printed. 


TIA,

Depends on the money; he’s told me as much.

Oh yes, how could I forget?  :-P

I picked a couple of the Rydarowicz cars last year, and I've also bought some Sunshine from him based on eBay listings.

But I don't think the Ferrari is for sale.

The chalked reporting marks on the boxcar makes me believe that this photo is documentation for an accident investigation.

Gang;

Nice P&LE gon shot. These are the big ingot molds they used at USS Homestead:

I think the RIX molds are similar. I remember the new molds being shipped in were a combo of black, new rust and mold release white, in color.

I couldn't get to St. Louis this year.  Was there a dealer who had some Stan Rydarowicz kits?  There was one last year, but I lost track of who it was.

I noticed a half dozen Rapido meat reefers on the shelf at Chuck's Depot in Marion, IL, too. I can't recall the paint and lettering schemes.

In addition, to seeing 4014 this morning I stopped at both Lombard and Des Plaines Hobbies.

Both have several of the Rapido meat reefers. For those that like to roll their own, Des Plaines had about 10 undec.

There were no Swift.

Model: SFRD 8423

At the recent Santa Fe Railway Historical & Modeling Society Convention in Pueblo, CO, Peter Aue of Germany showed me a number of custom-made details he is using to model a fifty-car Santa Fe reefer block in HO scale representing the year 1950. All fifty reefers are to represent car classes in service that year with the appropriate paint schemes, car details, car numbers and stencils.

Over twenty different SFRD refrigerator car classes will be required. This includes models from Sunshine, Intermountain, Westerfield and Athearn.

His model of SFRD 8423 is one of the fifty cars. This is a Class Rr-40 ice bunker refrigerator car that started with an InterMountain kit. He modified the kit with many photo-etched parts (running boards, ladder and fan parts, reinforcement panels, ice hatch cover stops, etc.), cast resin ends and custom printed decals. All of these items are non-commercial and are of his own design. And he weathered the finished model.

To no one's surprise this model won an award at the convention.

Thought I had some square styrene that would work.  At a scale 2 1/2" square, looks waaay too big. What source did you have for small amounts of the stuff?
Thx,

Bill, thanks for 2 things:
  1. A heads-up about that shaft being square!  I recall posts about square shafts, and somehow still missed that I have one here!
  2. A heads-up about the Tangent brakewheels. Ordered a couple of sets attached to some of those K-Brake sprues. $4 shipping is rare nowadays.
