Re: PC: Decal question...

Hi Gang,
  I saw the proposed "revised" microscale PC decals for Locos.  They have a
new number sequence and Have included maintainnace or yard base names(enola,
selkirk, etc)  Seems like the number of large logos have been reduced

are using foam brushes(like the ones you would use for appling polyurethene
to furniture).  I'm not sure what this decal film thins with or what agent
is needed to clean it up, say out of an airbrush or regular brush.  I guess
the foam brushes you would throw away as you can by several for under a
  I'm goint to do some experimenting with this stuff for the PC decals that
I have been making.
