Sweet.  The dot technique looks great.

I esp. like the way you did the worn-down lettering.

What is a good way to fade the red/blue arrows?  Many prototype Railboxes have these pretty heavily faded, esp. original Railbox scheme.

Custom decals, perhaps?    Would that be opaque enough to cover the factory arrows?

...the decal looks unrealistic - it looks like cut out of white paper and glued on - the edges have to be a little more faded, some overspray !

see that's what happen if you ask for a comment...   ;)
