Gussied-up.
Yes that is a good thing with Grandt, now we just need the same thing to happen with PSC - YIKES!!!


I sat down for a couple of hours today to get some pretties on the ol' girl.  Get her passel of buttons, ribbons and bows.   A few years back I had some decals made up for this project.  Again an attempt to forecast what I needed before I actually knew what I needed.  A classic case of not knowing what I didn't know.  I missed a couple of things, like numbers for the car, but I punted and created a couple of "ones" for her.    I had also put "glass" in the windows.  But I was very dissatisfied with it.  It was old and had seen some scrapes, so it was pretty scratch and clobbered.  I ripped it out.  I have more Evergreen .010 coming tomorrow.  A new package fresh and clean.  Throwing out the old, there wasn't much left. It is hard to see but I shadowed the yellow lettering with red and then again "BAGGAGE" is black and shadowed with red.  Numbers, the same.




I liked the look, but DANG, something was missing.  It was looking a little plain.  It needed some more geegaws to dress her up.  I had been looking at some "old timey" decals for passenger cars but they only came in gold.  Nice if you have an old Pullman Green car, but this ain't that.  What to do.  Besides those decals were like $12 bucks!  And I wouldn't even use half of them!   :hyp:  YIKES!!!  Two YIKES!!! in one day.  It's a rough day.

So I looked through the scads of decal sets that I have and found "Stripes" listed as 1" and 2".  HEY!!!  MicroScale, probably HO, 1"  would be 1/2 (or so) in O Scale.  :brill:  What a great thing.  I had red and black.  Black, forget about it.  But red.... hey that would look nice.  I don't want to too much yeller so I think I'll just stick with red.  I would have to buy some yeller, but I could.  Tell me what you think.  I kind of like it as it sits. I guess it is kind of hard to see in the photo.  But I could make the red shading like in the letters on the letter board, but I don't really think that I want to be repetitive.  




The ends are not finished off yet.  I will assemble the car and fit the roof.  I have to trim out the car so that the roof sits nicely.  I guessed at the arc of the end.  Once that is done then I will decal (it just gets the number) it then.  :java:

Superb work Steven! Please finish her up, show more photos, and then maybe one being towed by an H & T Ry loco.

Woodie

From my LHS, PSC has been purchased and is currently being relocated to a site in Washington State. No idea when the company may be back on line.
