We have been very busy creating new decal sets that we think you're going to really like. We take great pride in creating accurate and relevant decal sets for you.


To reproduce the fine detail that goes into a Microscale decal...our art department carefully incorporates the specifications to scale, reliable customer input and the knowledge that comes with eight decades doing model train/aircraft decals. Most decal sets come with a carefully crafted instruction sheet that contains tips on where to apply the decals, which engine or boxcar it was designed to go onto, paint recommendations and websites that give you more detail of how that Road name should look. We are always looking forward and at the same time...looking back to insure our line of decals is serving the hobby industry well.


This month we are pleased to release an open top Hopper decal set, Reporting Markers/alphabets for covered hoppers, D&H passenger cars and Well Car common data sheet.


We also have a nice profile on re-lettering an Athearn 40' boxcar and a great video on the best way to use our Micro Mask solution. Micro Mask is used instead of masking tape.  


Happy Modeling!

Using Micro Mask Instead of Masking Tape    

Found this short YouTube video on Micro Mask. It's a good primer on basic usage of the product. MI-7 Micro Mask is a liquid for helping to cover up complex surfaces prior to applying a secondary color. Enjoy!
