Hello everyone, Happy New Year’s. I have an MTH SW-1 P/S 3 that I would like to have it custom painted. I also would like to make some custom decals for it. Since it is going to be a local road. Does anyone have any recommendations who to contact to have this done ?

Thank you in advance,

Nick

If you have the artwork you are in fat city. Make a copy on the printer. If it is not the size you need, you can change it on the printer by trial and error until you get what you want. Copy it, check it, and print it on clear back decal paper. Now you have decals and can harken back to our youth and plastic models.IMG_3619

Not all paint and paint products play nice together.  Check, clear, dull, gloss coat applications.  Some may blister/lift existing model paint.

I agree totally with your statement, I now use Badger acrylic paint and an air brush. I spent to much time trying to smooth out crazing of paint on trains.

If you want to use spray cans check compatibility on some disposable sample material.

Yes, the type of plastic/paint combination can have an affect but, also the paint/paint combination can affect the finish. That is for me the reason I choose to use the acrylics, they also have a much faster cure time. Acrylics at least from Badger are dry in 15 minutes. I do wait over-nite before masking and applying the next color, and if you want to see the collection of colors available you can look at their website. They also have a large selection of airbrushes and i can attest to their being excellent with their service if you need a part for an airbrush.

See their Modelflex Railroad colors, the drop down menu is under SHOP on the website
