SP Blood Donor Car Paint/Decal Project Complete

Was able to get everything replicated on the SP Blood Donor passenger car for the most part. So painted and decaled over the weekend. Came out pretty good, I think.

Very nice. You did a great job of capturing the script lettering.

Jeff, looks good! Did you use a painted MTL car or did you shoot the green base color? Thanks

That looks great!  Any chance you could print another set of decals?

Mike, I stripped down a MTL car and repainted it with Pollyscale.

Unfortunately, I'm not a huge fan of just putting the decals out there. However, if you were to email me, I can paint one up for a pretty good deal. My email is jagowers@gmail.com. You see what you would get on your MT car.

Problem for me is that no MTL car available is even close to the window configuration of the SP Blood Donor car.  I have a PRB brass ATSF lounge observation that is fairly close but still needs some adjustments made.  I'd prefer to paint my own brass.  I'd be happy to pay a fair price for your custom decal work if you'd be willing to make a set available.

Honestly, never worried about the window configuration. Liked the car and figured it was close enough.
