Salvaded a steam and decaled it and a Niagra. Looks pretty good.

    I have a very old Rivarossi 0-8-0 that had a wheel lose and I retired to a box in the garage for a later sale for parts.

    I found it today and epoxied the wheel back on.

    I was looking for a NYC Niagra to decal for C&O when I found it.

    If I got the wheel aligned correctly with the rods it should be a good runner if used sparingly.

    I decaled them both for C&O after painting the tenders flat black. Almost finished with that now.

    Later I will dull coat the tenders and engines so they match.

    I have been looking forward to decaling the Niagra for some time.

    Got pics? I've always been fond of the Rivarossi 0-8-0's myself.

    Not yet but it seems the Dull Coat made the clear part of the decalls stand out realy badly.

    I may have to strip it and look for other decals.
    I wonder if it would have been better to clear coat it then use the dull coat?

    I have never had a problem befor.

    Shouldn't have been a problem to dulcoat over the decals after finishing. That's how I always do it.

    bad batch maybe?
