Autoracks Hold A Lot Of Grafitti

    Here's a Walther's enclosed autorack that I used to replicate an actual CNW car (except for the road number, that is). Liking to put grafitti on my contemporary kits, I found the prototype art to be one of the longest I've seen. So I had to do it in HO.

    Outstanding, as always! Two :thumb:'s way up.

    Two questions:
    a. I'm not fluent in "TAGGING" - can you translate? Grim ... what? :D

    b. Also, out of curiosity, how long does it take you to do one of these cars?

    Wow, that looks as typical as anything we have around here and there are a lot of autoracks parked just south of us. Excellent job.:thumb: :thumb:

    Looks like GRIM KWIEFY (something like WAPL ?) VAPID

    The car takes upwards of a week or 10 days. I do lots of washes and stuff that need to dry before the next step. Probably the most tedious is cleaning the decal artwork on the computer for printing (i.e. removing all the prototype car background, and then sizing it in HO to fit the model).
