Hello all,

I just finished building a new RhB freight car, and now I am ready to apply some dry transfer numbers, as well as a few decals (I have to print them on my ink-jet printer). I airbrushed on the paint using a flat Model Master enamel. I am planning on using a semi-gloss MM lacquer at the end, but from reading other posts here it looks like I should give it one coat of the clear, then do the decals, then another overcoat of clear. Does this also apply to dry transfers, or should they go on the flat paint prior to any clearcoat? One more question: The clear coat I bought is the Testors Model Master semi-gloss lacquer--do you think it would be subject to yellowing? I had read in several places that if it's outside a lot it might yellow. I don't leave my trains outside when I'm not running them, so maybe it isn't a factor?

Thanks!
Keith

Thanks for the advice! This is an intermodal drop deck car for the RhB, and as they have just been put into service, they are nice and clean, and appear to be semi-gloss in finish so that's what I'm going to use. When I get the car finished I'll post a picture of it here.
Thanks again,
Keith
