    Microscale decal set 87-62 is for the Southern E series, and will let you add "the crescent, The tennesean, or The Southerner" to the unit.:thumb:

    You can try an eraser, slightly scrubbing them, or a light grade of sandpaper and sand very lightly. Always have some matching paint handy, just in case of an OOPS:thumb:

    You can try some decal setting solution on the number you want to remove to see if it will disolve the number.
