Wilson Martin built this tanker for his road and decorated it General American Tank Car. Decals from MODERN RAILS G-CAL DECALS LINE. Good thinking Will putting together a home built tanker. And a great custom paint and decaling job. I especially like the caustic soda dripping stains. Scroll down a bit and see Wilson's Chrome SF Units he made with my decals.
This is the tanker that received your decals. 2” PVC pipe and a Kirkville Locomotive Works kit. The dome assembly came from Ozark Miniatures. I’ll add “molten sulfur” letters and add weathering then I’ll call it finished!
Bill Herbert wanted to make a old style MDC wood steam era boxcar. We found a decent picture of the MDC car he wanted to model. I drew the decal set right over the top of the lettering that was on the pictured boxcar. We see his newly modeled car below. Bill also wrote me: Hi Ricky, The car came out great!! Can’t thank you enough for doing this one. Photo attached. I can send other views if you want me to. I was a little nervous about changing things on the car because of your comments but I really had no problems at all. I did weather it lightly.
Awesome job on the painting and decal placement on your model Bill. I am pleased that you chose Modern Rails Decals for your project.
WILSON MARTIN CONTACTED ME ABOUT MAKING DECALS FOR HIS SANTA FE CHROME UNITS. HE SENT ME PICTURES AND SIZES OF FONTS ETC NEEDED FOR HIS PROJECT.
WILSON ADDED THIS: I shot them myself. I used Floquil paint I had bought years ago, through a Paasche H model single action airbrush. SP Scarlet, ATSF Yellow and Engine Black, thinned with Diosol. Then clear coated with a gloss acrylic spray prior to decals which were set with Microscale Microset and Microsol, then Testors dull cote, feathered on lightly, as per your instructions. And I love the results!
A while ago Brien Wood contacted me about a single decal for his coal tender and water capacity for a decal.
I received the decals on Monday. Really appreciate your quick turn around! Attached is a quick picture showing how the water level decal is used on my model. If you want to use it on your website.
Larry Mills worked with me to redecorate his CSX Diesel. And it turned out AWESOME!!
Here are a couple of photos of my repainted and decaled CSX that you made the decals for. I finally found the pictures in my train file foulder. Ron Nagey was very helpful in helping me to get this engine complete and back on the rails. It looks great! Thank you for working with me on the decals.
Sincerely, Larry Mills.
Thought I would send a couple shots of the first unit done...a Weaver U25B...custom made firecracker antenna, dropsteps, and sunshade, along with an Atlas bell, and precision horn...Locomotive was painted Floquil reefer yellow, and Scalecoat CP rail red 80% to 20% white... with out you this locomotive would not be possible...
Brandon Presley Contacted me about 2 Southern Crescent passenger cars he wanted to change the names on. Working with Brandon, him letting me know the sizes he wanted for his cars names. We got the color right using Elephant's rocket Sunflower with a 2 spot color pass. He applied the decals and they look amazing. good job Brandon! The road names you see were drawn by Modern Rails Decals 2019.
