HO decals for OM or OY?

Craig Linn
 

Good morning everyone.

Im starting to get ready to paint my Rotary OM (or is it OY??). Anywho...I’m wanting to know if anyone knows of decals anywhere to purchase? I’ve looked at San Juan Decals and nothing...Microscale as well..Nadda. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Craig.

Thanks for the link.  Clearly I did a bad search.  Hehehehe

Thanks again to both of you for helping me out.

Are you modeling OM or OY?  

Remember that if you are doing OM, the brass Overland or the DP kit, they have the big tender that was assigned to it in 1962.  So not correct in red.  This tender is the ex Uintah 30's tender that became D&RGW W-499.  Much bigger than the tender OM had most of its life. When the Friends painted the OM red, the large 30 and the W-499 were plainly visible with the darker color.  Now that OY is red again, I hope OM will get painted back to correct gray in the future.

Rotaries are my addiction.  

Would love to see pics when you get it completed.

Both of the OMs in the last post have been backdated with the original tenders.

Thanks for the info. 

I picked up an Overland OM a year or so ago. ... as I’ve always wanted to do one (bought one of the Durango Press ones too a while ago). 

I’m just in the initial phases of it right now, but hope to start it soon. 

Have a mine I’m scratch building right now that I need to get done for a club contest.  Once that’s done..either the rotary or the varnish cars will be next.

If you want help backdating the OM or building any of the others, let me know. Not hard to make it pre 1962 with the aux water car.

The other rotaries are all doable.  the DP kit has the parts to make D&RGW OM, ON, C&S 99200, and a few SG plows. with the "paddle" style of plow wheel and blades.
The rotaries with the "scoop" style wheel like the D&RGW OO, OY, 070, C&S 99201, CM B, and a lot of SG plows can be done with some other parts.

Thanks Brian,  I know you have a similar affliction!

Even have to go to the dark side every now again with a standard gauge plow or two.

Thanks for the offer Tony. I’m sure when I get to it...I’ll be reaching out.

Thinfilm in California has the OM decals in black in 3 scales—HOn3, Sn3 and On3. For HO it is set O2-A.  Here is the link

Hi,

 

I would like to know how you backdated it. I’m using the DP kit and have a 1935 version as my target.
