  1. Ok, thanks for your input. I just can't see myself submerging the shell in alcohol, that's a lot of alcohol! Hummmmm, I'll keep pondering the idea. Thanks again! Nick
  2. So what is your opinion on just lightly sanding the decals down, washing it, then priming it ? Thanks for the info and tips !
  3. Good ole Stan got me 2 sets of Canadian National for my MTH project! Thank you for the info tip !
  4. Thanks for your input. I was talking about a clear dull coat, after the decals. Thank also for getting me in touch with Stan regarding the decals. He made me 2 sets of beautiful CN decals, can't wait to apply them. Never would have found decals without you, or him, so thank you!
  5. Hello everyone, I need some opinions and suggestions on painting my MTH Dash-8. I've seen pictures of this engine, as new and they are glossy. I've also seen plenty of older units with satin, or flat paint. I could paint it gloss and then use a dull coat after applying the decals. Should I use gloss, or satin ? I also wanted opinions on removing old paint. I've tried isopropyl alcohol and oven cleaner with no effects on the paint. I could use something stronger, or like I've always done, just use very fine sandpaper to rub out the decals and prime it. Any thoughts ? Thanks for your time. Nick

  9. Hello ! I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find some Canadian National decals in G-scale ? I need them for a dash-8. Thank you ! nickatnite
  10. Hello ! I'm searching for a MTH Gauge 1 Canadian National dash-8 with either Protosound 2, or 3. I got hit by a sniper on eBay, otherwise I would have one. Would rather have a used, or very used one to keep the price down. New ones with PS 3 are around $570. or so and that would be my last resort. Thanks for your time ! Nick

    That would be great, thank you! Do you have a PayPal account? Nick
  15. Just bought a used mth gauge 1 Hudson and the volume is very low. You can hear it, but it sounds more like an HO model. I tried a different hudson tender and it worked fine. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what the fix might be. I could try another speaker, or ? I hope it's just the speaker.
