Mogul tender redo
Posted by chocho willy on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 10:47 AM

    Up dating the old mogul passenger train tender, it was loosing it's letters the state was  hand painted and not sized correctly, the other side of the tender had lost most of it's letters. So I decided to spruce it up with new graphics. Taking over my wife's silhouette machine I embarked on new letters. Getting the letters angled correctly to the state took a little doing but I had already done the tender for the prairie, so it wasn't too hard, just time consuming. I copied the state off the internet and placed it on the tender at the correct spot that I had repainted with the same green that the passenger car upper sides were done, repainted the side black then removed the sticker revealing a green state. Painted the yellow and orange strip down the side of the tender's raised edge with paint pins. Next endeavor is to add coal to plastic load for a more realistic look like I got on the prairie. More pictures to follow, Bill  old letteringre lettered tender
