I know, I know, its been 6 months since any work was done. Finally the gondola has been painted and detailed. I have gone for a more accurate lighter shade of German gray, which means that I’ll have to repaint the carriage trucks unfortunately. You can see, however, that the 35 year old decals did not turn out too well. I’ll have to see if they can be somewhat disguised by weathering. They at least won’t come off with 3 layers of matt varnish sealing them down.
