Resized (scaled) prints were made for the hand painted names on both sides of the prototype. These prints were cut out as stencils to get the proportions and styles just right. These stencils were held in place with my thumb while I painted in the fills with hobby brand acrylics. The outlines, clouds, shadows and details and touch-ups will be handled later freehand with a fine brush
While studying this print of TLOK, I notice the original UP deco that was covered up except the top was still visible. This deco was the KEEP ON TRUCKIN' . . . BY TRAIN Now I search through my collection of decals for something that looks like it
You're not alone in your opinion on "graffiti". Many others dislike this activity as well.
I find the grime, weathering, damage and graffiti interesting on trains. I wouldn't replicate a clean train or a clean train with graffiti either. I like the prototypical combination of graffiti and weathering effect on modern freight rolling stock.

kingsnova: Hello all, I just bought a used 26" Mongoose Beast fat tire at a garage sale $140.00. Good deal till the rear bearings were loose and broke the axle. Anyone know how I can get parts to fix it?
