Custom Decals

HO-Scale Decals & Decal Paper
Be sure you research your boxcar project. Photos, Builders diagrams & Experts from Historical Societies are the best source for actuate information. Most important have fun researching the history of your favorite road. To assist in seeing the small lettering, we recommend using a OptiVISOR when cutting out decals.

Instructions:
1. Don’t leave in dish of water for more then 1 min. to avoid decal separating from backing in dish. Cut out Decal as close to lettering as you comfortable with, dip decal in clean warm water for about 10-15 sec. and remove. Place on warm wet cloth for 90+ sec., decal should now slide from backing.
2. Hold decal in desired location on model and slide backing away.
3. With a small soft wet paint brush you may fine-tune positioning. Keep decal wet.
4. Gently dab/blot with a towel to remove extra water and allow to dry.
5. Test finishing solutions before applying to entire decal.
Store decals flat in a cool dry place. Avoid exposer to heat, sun light, & moisture.
For most realistic results use Kadee® Undecorated cars.
Kadee® Decals are water slide decals. The film thicknes without backing is about .0003" We proof ink color over an appropriate substrate & try to closely match color to colors used on Kadee® "RTR" boxcars or hoppers, some inks may have a slight texture look to their appearance. If  your decals have been in storage, get brittle when applying them. Then we suggest coating the decals with "Liquid Decal Film" to restore the decal. We don't recommend clear coating decals before they are applied, the decals can become stiff & brittle from the solvents in clear coat. But, if you must "Top Coat" should work, always test clear coats before applying to entire decal.
