Restoration Projects: Diesel Locomotives

 EMD GP7 - Rio Grande 3510 "Bumble Bee Scheme"

After repainting the diesel shell with flat black paint. I sprayed (air brushed) the areas where the decals will be applied with Micro Gloss. I used Micro set to float the decal to the desired location. Then I used Micro Sol to set the decals over any irregular surface and make them more permanent. After letting the shell dry for 48 hours. I over spayed (air brushed) the entire shell with Micro Flat. This returned the shell back to its flat black look and eliminated any film from showing thru on the decals.

I used the S Scale decals from Des Plaines Hobbies.
