A little more insight into what I am working on. The NMRA Garden State Division has started a model contest where you have to use 80% of a 50' HO scale boxcar shell. A model railroad manufacturer donated a lot of these shells to the NMRA, and the NMRA offered them to divisions and regions to use in clinics, etc. Anyway, one of our officers suggested a contest:



So, that is what those beer cases are going to be used for. And, I did take knife to plastic, removing the doors from the shell. I also plugged the holes used for holding a cast roof walk.



And, that's all I am going to say about it, right now.

Ah, the boxcar shell contest!

I've been thinking of what to do with mine.

Hmmm, sounds interesting. Are we supposed to guess, or just remain curious?

Ok. I guess it's safe to assume it's not a Harsco gondola!

No, not a Harsco gondola. But, a very good guess!

But, I did receive an email from Tichy recently about custom decals:

"In addition we are now offering custom printed decals from your artwork. Sheets are 8.5 x 11 inches printed to within .1 inch of the edges. Sheets are full color (cmyk) plus white. If the sheet is all white ink do the artwork in black and tell us it is white, if the sheet has mixed colors pick a unique color for the white portions and we will substitute the white here. Artwork should be vector (corel or adobe illustrator are best). Either do outlines or send any special fonts along with the artwork. We will let you know if you used a font we do not have. We can also print from a high quality PDF. First sheet is $35, additional sheets are $15 at any time. At this time standard postage is included, priority mail is $5 for any size order. Turn around is normally one week."

It has me thinking....

Chuck

Well, I already worked it out in a sheet, Mark. At least if they were all HO scale. It works out to enough decals for 44 cars.



Maybe I'll post this over on Rick's page to see if it festers.

That's cool Chuck! Heck, I'd do some for deliveries made on my layout from Harsco!

OK, back to my boxcar project....

I painted the shell white and applied decals made from the artwork I created.

No, George. A friend of mine ran them on his Alps printer. I created the artwork and sent him vector files that were the size I needed for decals.
