Attempted my first relettering project after grabbing a nice Lionel Boom car for $20. The fantasy scheme wasn’t my thing, but it’s amazing what a magic eraser and some iso alcohol can do! I had lots of inspiration from older threads like SIRT’s posts about weathering Lionel wooden decks. The forum is such a great resource.

Next time I’ll opt for glossier paint to better blend the decals. I had to rely upon some light (amateurish!) weathering to help blend them in.  Overall I’m pretty pleased with my first attempt. Just need to find the right figure to add!
