Someone asked about paint removal, but I could not find the thread. I just stripped the lettering from an MDC boxcar in about 4 minutes using denatured Alcohol. Took it right off, with no damage. Jerry
I've used isopropol alcohol and a magic rub eraser. That removes the lettering, without removing the lower paint layers. Good for simple relettering. For the heavyweight coach I am working on, I used sand papaer and took off the letters that way. Really easy! Not the most effective, so on the observation car, I might use the alcohol.
Stan, it's a MDC boxcar, I like them behind the Aristo Live Steam Mikado. Stripped the one and painted it gray, Marty is supposed to be sending some decals, guess I'll pin him down this weekend and get a set for it! Jerry
