I’m so impatient sometimes...

My gut said “prime it”, so I ran down to Hobby Lobby and picked up a can of Tamiya fine primer, first time I’ve used it... boy is it great stuff!

There’s only light green and black on the cupola, and no lettering, so once the green cures I can mask it off and hit the roof with black, then flat clear the whole thing and the cupola will be done...

How did the oven cleaner work out?

Worked pretty well... I found a can of the “skull and crossbones” stuff on a shelf in the basement, that worked well but there wasn’t very much left. For some reason I had a hard time finding any oven cleaner in the stores around here, and when I did find some it was the newer “safer” lemon scented formula. That stuff didn’t work very well at all...

Done!!

I’m really happy with how it turned out!

The light green dried a little bit lighter than the light green that Atlas used on the engine, but it doesn’t bother me at all... it’s not obvious unless the caboose is right next to the engine... let’s just say the engine had been shopped and painted more recently than the caboose, therefore the caboose is a bit faded...

The decals went on well, and they look great! I can highly recommend Highball Graphics! I sent them an email Friday evening asking if they could resize the HO decals to O, not expecting an answer until sometime on Monday... they responded on Saturday morning that they had resized them and added them to the website! Above and beyond expectations!

Edit: I somehow managed not to loose any of the grab irons!
