Revisiting an Older Model

Another quick way is to use an graphite pencil where needed and of course it is a great effect in O Scale.

Not difficult at all.  When you paint the car, get some blank decal scraps and shoot them with the car color.  After the paint cures, use a sharp knife to cut thin strips from the decal scraps.  Use as desired after the initial decal application is fully set and cleaned up of bubbles and excess adhesive.

Hey Boss,


Somehow I got deleted from this group in late May. I guess someone didn't like me. Jail is a lonely place.

I have had good results making very thin slices of decals and paper with a good quality paper cutter. I usually make about 5 or more slices before I get the exact width I want.

Ben, thanks for the tip but I’m afraid your hands might be more steady than mine

Very nice, and what I see of the floor and interior is lovely, as well!

Thanks for sharing your inspiring work, Gene!

 

I see the roof has some possible paint failure. What are your weathering processes for this appearance?

Recently, I have been upgrading older model.  One such project is this 1/4” scale plastic model kit offered by San Juan Car Company.  

I added some weathering using Vallejo acrylic paints.

Looks good Gene.  I especially like the finish and the decals with the stencil breaks look very nice.  Too bad we haven't figured out how to do those in HO.
