Reply to "How-To guide on making a “Pacific” series sleeping car (Finished?)"

Another terrific project, "how-to" thread with plenty of detail, @T.Albers.

Question:  why did you feel it necessary to put a gloss coat on the SCII paint?  The mfr. says SCII paints are decal ready--no need for a separate gloss coat.  I ask because I am going to air brush four NP North Coast Limited dome cars soon using SCII paint and hadn't planned to apply a gloss coat prior to decal application per SCII's directions.

Question:  You didn't use SCII's gloss because...?

By the way, I feel your pain.  I thought I was about finished with two of the four NP NCL dome cars until I was trying to apply the white separation stripe and realized I'd be better served to paint the stripe.  At that point, I also realized I wasn't satisfied with the dark green paint application.  So those two cars were stripped; more accurately, are in the process of being stripped and prepped for a "do-over."
