Does anyone do BNSF decals in 1/29? I’m looking to modernise my USA-T SD40-2 with number patches and logos. I’ve collected some photos so I can make my own but just wondering if there’s a source before I spend ages on the pc getting it right ;)

For US decals, I suspect all will suggest Stan Cedarleaf?

Ditto Stan for waterslide decals. G Scale Graphics do vinyls to order. I had them do my lettering for the WWL Co. G-Scale Graphics. Ozark are apparently handling the CDS lettering catalogue, there might be something there in dry print form. Max

Ok it’s going to work out quite a bit more to do it via the folks above so I’m going to have a go myself with home transfer paper as that only costs a fiver to try. I’m working on the artwork then I’ll have to do some tests to match the colours over the yellow.
Currently working on the aircon units for the GP38, the master is plastic and I’ll cast a pair using some silicon, I have left over, for the mould.

Paul,
What are you using for your references for this?

I need some better pictures than I presently have..

Leading question:
How many units would the mould be good for?

I’m using photos off railpictures.net and the BNSF roster site. The shape isn’t going to be exactly right as I don’t have the drawings or square on photos but as certain locos have carried at least three different styles it’s good enough until I find better photos or drawings. They will only be tacked on with tape.
The moulds should be good for ten to twenty castings.
