5th Ave car shops DT&I decals


Rhbale@...
 

Hi Bill...

The report in the May edition of MRH said, and I quote... "5th Avenue Car
Shops, P.O. Box 423, LaGrange, IL 60525, has HO scale decals for the
Detroit Toledo & Ironton gondola and NADX-Hormel reefer projects presented at the
Cocoa Beach Shake-N-Take clinics. To order the decals send a check for
$12 to the above postal address. This is a one-time project and when sold
out, the decals will not be rerun."

That means if you want them, order them without delay.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Subject: [STMFC] 5th Ave car shops DT&I decals

I just saw in the MRH on-line mag that 5th Avenue was going to make decals
for the DT&I gon and the NADX Hormel reefer.
They don't list an e-mail or regular phone line on their site.
Can anybody provide one? Are these DT&I decals for an earlier Greenville
scheme earlier than the new offering from Walthers, to wit, the brown, nor
late '50s black scheme?
Thanks for any help.
Bill

Bill you need to do mail order with 5th Ave Car Shops. Jim does not do email
or a website. And I don't believe there is work phone. And as others pointed
out, the decals are remaining stock on hand from the shake n take projects,
so quantities are perhaps limited.

So, how do we know what these decals look like, not having attended the shake n take?

Bill look for photos of the Cocoa Beach event, specifically photos of shake
& take models. Or search for the shake n take yahoo list, where you should
find photos, instructions and helpful advice.

Or if you have RMC from April 2011 , there is a photo of my model and Denny
Anspach's better model on page 99. Al Brown's model is on the next page.
The DT&I decals are well illustrated there.

I got impatient and cobbled up decals from other sources. The fine 5th Avenue Shops decals are, as Schuyler says, "well illustrated" by his and Denny's gorgeous models.
