I am doing one now. On a metal MTH tender, you can remove the lettering using lacquer thinner and Q-tips. It will not bother the black paint.

Once the lettering is off, use a cloth dampened with isopropyl alcohol and gently wipe away any left over film.

When dry, buff the area of the new decal with light rubbing compound to shine it up. Clean that off and you are ready for decals…

You might want to put some more info in your profile so "custom painters" can contact you.  You also might indicate which prototype railroad you want your tender painted for and the particular "scheme" (if one exists) that you would like to see.  Tom's suggestion, above, works if you are only looking to re-letter (or re-decal) an already black tender.
