    I ordered a 20 sheet decal sampler from Bel and it arrived today. Unfortunately, I ordered 20 all clear instead of 10 clear and 10 white! :( Now I can use the clear for my Gauge hopper, but they won't work for my 4-6-2 engine.

    Argh! Now I have no idea what to do next....

    I don't want to spend the $$$ (the Spousal Overunit would blow a gasket if I did.... :eek: )

    Why not sell ten of the clear ones and buy some white with the dough? I'd probably buy a sheet or two.

    I just got the 10-10, and would be willing to swap a couple sheets of white with you for a couple clears ??????? I'm not sure if that would work for you, but basetically it would end up just costing us both postage................

    Well, I decided to bite the bullet and spend my birthday $$$ on the white sheets as well as the solvaset and such for my decals. I'll have to wait for the white sheets to decal my NSR cars (the white star on a blue flag is the company logo....) but I can go ahead and work on my Gauge cars. I am already working on a 2 bay hopper right now in HO. It was originally a Conductors Choice (by Life Like) L & N hopper. Since it was the right color, all I needed to do is remove the old markings and print new ones. Right now, the clear sealant is drying on the second of many coats to the sheet. Now I have to wash the remains of the alcohol off the car so I can put gloss in it too. I can't wait to get this baby up and running... ;)
