I thought of etched brass stripes or sth. else.


Look at the link! ;)

They're 3D - resin decals, printed onto decal paper. So you apply them like decals!

So here are some pics of some recent modelling efforts, even though one (the IC boxcar) doesn't fit the theme of this thread!

The CN 1937 car gets some weathering...

The CN car with the correct brake rigging for the unique arrangement used on the first few series of CN's 1937-design cars.

100_9792.JPG

Illinois Central boxcar with Dan Kohlberg decals, slightly kitbashed for accuracy - A end ladders cut down, no roofwalk.

100_9793.JPG

Lake Superior & Ishpeming 1937 boxcar with custom decals. Still need to finish weathering the roof.

And a pic of progress on the BL2...

Looking good, Man! I always liked the bold orange colour on the IC stuff.

I use the N scale ones, which are fine for smaller rivets; I'm considering getting an HO set too to check out... some of the smaller HO ones might work for big TT rivets (like on tank cars, for example).

i did wonder if the N scale bridge rivets might look OK in TT but i think they are placed too far apart.
