Nice job on the cars Jim. Just curious how do you take old lettering off and then apply new lettering?

Thanks Wayne. I plan on a good size section for it. This will be one of the back building. Can add a lot in a small space in N-Scale! Icon_lol

Lynn, it depends on the car really. This car had stamped lettering on it, I light sanded it and repainted the car. I make my own decals on the puter. Some cars I use a pencil eraser to remove the lettering. There is probably more ways to do it than you can shake a stick at. The second boxcar is an outside braced one and they are always a challenge to do.

Looks great, Jim. Thumbsup Thumbsup I especially like the view up the tracks between the buildings, and the signs look good, too.

Fantastic Jim! I especially like the big Gern sign and those loading bay doors with the windows! The whole complex has a very believable gritty look to it. I can smell the mash!

Thanks guys. Still a lot to do. I think this is just a section of the complex, I need to make a bottle plant and who knows what else. This is N-Scale, mostly scratch built/kit bashed.

Why all the military vehicles at a civilian distillery?

Its only disguised a a civilian distillery, because it actually a bio-chemical munitions factory.
The burbon is the by-product.
Didn't know GERN was into "black-ops".
