    Dry transfers! I don't use much in the way of decals unless that's what I have on hand or it's all that's available..

    Clover House -- standard stuff right out of the catalog. Some of these cars get built after I buy what I think looks like a great set just so I can use the lettering,
    In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

            Another beautiful job, Martin. I really like the way the underside of the floor boards stand out.

              I too am always amazed at your underside detailing. Another well built piece of rolling stock.

                Thanks! Neat how a small detail that will rarely be seen actually adds to the model - underside boards. I think that beats a solid plank of basswood pretty soundly and it's not a major investment in time and materials.

                  This is what I like about scratch building, kitbashing & detail upgrading any model. The little details make the model that much more rewarding, interesting and give the viewer a better appreciation for the work involved (hopefully). Of course, those of us who build are really the rivet counter inspectors because we appreciate it when we see those details not forgotten.

                  If you build, keep up the great attention to details everyone! Thanx Thom...
