    Decaling is easy!

    Hi all!

    I've been putting off decorating this formerly undecorated GP9 because I had no experience with decals. I found a set of PC locomotive decals at my LHS and decided to give it a try. Piece of cake! The instructions told me that some geeps wore the red P logo so I went with that so I wouldn't waste the all white ones I want for other projects later. Here's how it came out.

    Ralph, if decalling were hard, I couldn't do it.
    Just watch out for sets past their sell-by date. :D
    and also for Walthers' PC steam loco set.

    That looks great! If you would like some unsolicited advice that could make it even easier, try using Microscale products. I have found that by using Microscale clear gloss before decaling is the way to go regaurdless of what kind of paint you use. Then if you use Micro-set and Micro-sol (Microscale products) in the decaling process, they actually react with the clear gloss almost rendering the film invisible even before the final clear coat is applied.
