  • I like it Dave. Looks very nice. Now I've got to get some decals made of mine and we can exchange road names.

    • Next step is finding out who does custom decals. Not really sure how to "Prepare Artwork"

      • There's a guy on MRH by the name of Bill Brillinger ( I think I spelled it correct) that does decals. He's located in Canada. The guys on MRH say he's very helpful. I'll find his website and be back later to post it here for you to check out.

          • David,

            Another maker of custom decals is Circus City Decals. They advertise in RMC and I purchased custom decals from him last year.

            Website: https://circuscitydecals.com/

            The big question is in what format you must submit artwork.

                  Stan Cedarleaf is another decal maker. Larry sent me a sample that had belonged to Geezer. Quite nice.

                  • That ceiling is impressive. It's taking me forever just to paint my garage white.

                    There's a prototype for everything.

                    If you can't make it perfect, make it adjustable.

                    • Don't feel bad Scott. Thus far it's been several years. And there are always places that seem to beg for improvement. I've got the wind machine and ceiling sprinklers on order for the effect of total immersion into the storm.

                      • Two things. Been working out details for decals. Getting a full page of logos, in two sizes, 10x10mm and 15 x15mm. It will be the yellow and green NCRR clover leaf in my avatar.

                        Also two sheets road names and numbers, 4mm and 6mm in height. One sheet in black, one sheet in white.

                        The other thing is re-planning an area in the harbor, against the backdrop. I'll post a few pics of possible orientations by Monday.

                        Please feel free to participate with your opinion. I may not use everyone's ideas when presented, but I always appreciate the input of your opinions and their contrasts.

                        • Dave,

                          I went through this thread this morning to re-acquaint myself with your trackplan and picturing what was going on in the harbor area. Are you able to reach tracks that are against the backdrop OK?

                          On the decal side, I've thought about what I could do to create a car and lettering that would run on your layout and Bernd's as well. The big issue for me is era, mine being the late 19th century. The two Lehigh Valley affiliates that make up my railroad were completely subsumed into the LV by the 20th century. What I might do is carry one of my railroads into the 20th century as a narrow gauge railroad. How else could we interchange?

                          So what gauge is Bernd's RR? Hon3 like you or HOn30?

                          • Mike,

                            Era is not a problem for my railroad. I basically says in the steam to transition era. To me it wouldn't matter what date your era is and type of car it would work with. I would prefer it to be on HO standard since that line goes to off staging interchange. A HOn3 version would be nice since I could say the line bought the car from your line because they needed extra cars and didn't have time to build any. I just think it's a neat idea to trade decals with other modelers.

                            • Swapping decals is the easiest way. Mine are officially on order as of this morning.

                              Then they can time travel in the mail.

                              For the " interstellar space time condominium interchange", I was thinking it would be Sterling NY, where our mythical lines would have crossed.

                              Off to the far right of my track track past the 1:1 steps, I have room for about 9" of yard space for storage and Standard to Narrow Gauge transfer.

                              • Dave,

                                Having not had much time lately viewing the various threads and the forums being down, I must admit you have done quite a lot of work since I visited you.

                                I like the way your backdrop sky meets the ceiling tiled painted sky. Nice work ! And the painted sky tiles is something I have never seen before. Great
                                concept for sure. I posted this to your thread last night, but those UFO's must have grabbed it up, cause I didn't see my post, so I am sending it again.
