Back by popular demand (Reprints)

Over the years we have created a vast collection of decal sets that often fall out of demand or popularity. Like all things, what was hot is not...and what is not is now hot!


Here are just a few decal sheets we have reprinted just in time for the holidays!

Amtrak SDP40F Modeled from a Kaslo Shops Kit

Model By Jim Becker             


There are just some models that are completely not available as RTR, well, at least YET! Jim Becker did a great job building this Amtrak SDP40F from a Kaslo Shops kit (http://www.kasloshops.com/). Microscale 87-100 was used for the lettering. Keep in mind 87-100 and it's brethren (87-362, 87-423, 87-424) has been updated in HO and N scale to include the Amtrak 40th Anniversary schemes. This locomotive certainly has me inspired to build some resin kits! - Chris Palomarez
