    hahahaha no way man. Months ?!? hahaha. Sorry, but its so easy man! Its just like drawing, except you've got a different canvas. I've watched a few people do this kinda stuff before, not nearly as good/clean as those. But none the less it was cool.


    I wanna get real chummy with the guy who owns Northlands (If you dont know of it, then dont worry about it). Which is this dinky building in northern jersey thats home to (I think its) The worlds largest model train layout. Its got so much shit...... but it'd be awesome to paint some of those trains and just stick em around.








    A while ago these things were selling like crazy on ebay, I think it was pherz (not sure), who had just a regular lil HO sized box car, and he covered one whole side in a rather simple piece, and it sold for something like 85 dollars on ebay. Shits nuts.

    . bump .

    Great link and project. Never seen that one before.

    There's a model railroad club in my area and they display the whole layout and operate it at the county fair.
    It's incredibly detailed and 1/87 HO scale, also.

    I ask them why there isn't any graffiti on their freight cars and they just get all grumpy and
    say that their layout is pre 60's era, so there wasn't graffiti on the trains yet.

    I point out a few of their own covered hoppers and reefers that are in fact post 80's.
    And clearify that I'm not saying that they should have to put graffiti on their trains,
    I'm just asking why there rarely is graffiti on train layouts of current era,
    esp. when they are otherwise replica detail authentic.

    Their final answer is that they don't want that gang garbage on their trains.
    Even in scale model world, graffiti is hated!

    - although I have seen a few model railroaders who don't react that way and in fact try
    to replicate graffiti on their trains, very few.
