I make a lot of custom rolling stock and locos for my layout. I have used Microscale, Black Cat, and CDS decals. When I saw k4decals had Michigan Central boxcar decals, I ordered a set.  The price was very reasonable, and shipping was free. To my surprise, included were decals for 2 boxcars, so I made 2.  I sanded, primed, and painted (gloss)  2 K-Line boxcars I had.  The decals were applied, and they beautifully covered rivets and ribs,  with no Micro-Set needed!  I gave a final coating of Dull-Cote to seal the finish.  The results are great!  I will buy these again, and highly recommend k4decals as high quality.

John A and others,

I'm finishing up my Southern Railway PS4 (4-6-2). I bought the decals from K4decals. As others have said, these are high quality decals and the art work was excellent. I had not issues with these and would buy other decals from them whenever I need other sets.

Although my PS4 is a Legacy scale, I did have to do some trimming. But this did not effect the layout as the decals lined up without any hitch.

Another win for K4decals - I finished an old Ambroid horizontal rib hopper kit, and the original decals fell apart on me, even with a liberal coating of Microscales liquid decal film. I cobbled together a new complete set from K4decals Erie offset side hopper set, and several of their general lettering sheets (for the "NYS&W" reporting marks and some car data).

I also used K4decals on a Lionel Southern Railway PS4. I got this engine unpainted - it was an engineering sample pre-production model.

The K4decals were the finishing touch that made this model complete. The art work on the decals are of very high quality. And they were easy to work with.

I hope that they will do more, especially for some midwestern roads such as CB&Q, Great Northern, Northern Pacific, Milwaukee Road, Rock Island, and others.

Great decals! Did up a few box cars.

For those of us who have all the roads, there's not much more he can offer. Prices on cars lately to re-work have become unjustifiable. Not much in used items are selling these days due to lack of demand and greedy sellers with over priced shipping. Maybe they should get a discount shipping from home, buy a scale and get a clue?
