    I need some info on some decals for number boards. I need black ones with white letters for Some UP Athearns I'm fixing up. Does anybody now some item numbers for microscale to find these? I searched their site and I cant find what I'm looking for. Any help would be appreciated.

    What locos are you fixing up? I think if you look up microscale for S.P. engine decals for the type of engine you are modeling you'll find the number boards on the decal sheets. I think most are black with clear numbers for use in lighted number boards, though. To get white numbers, you need to paint the number board white, and then apply the decal after the paint has dried.

    Todd - Try doing what I did. You can buy a little decal kit from Testors which has a
    PC software program and you can print any style and size of decals that you need. You can also order decal paper from just about anyone. You will also need to get a can of sealer for the decal prints. I bought my kit at Walmart (or I should say that my wife did for making decals for our buildings). Good luck !

    There was a company or person called Shell Scale Decals who made number board decals but I just did a search and found no website and they are not in the model mags anymore. Don't know if they're around, maybe someone else knows and will chime in.

    I have purchased some of their "basic sets" in Rail Graphics, but I know that they do custom works too. Maybe you want ask them about what you need and the price.
