    I like the grafiti on your cars. Did you hand paint? If not how did you do it?

    Besides nice looking cars, the tracks are well ballasted, too.
    Just one comment about the B23-7. In the picture you can see the the see-through part of the decals (called silvering) that distracts from a nicely painted model.
    Did you use Micro-Sol after the decals were applied and dry? If not, it is not too late to drench it at least 4, 5 times. Use a soft hand brush for that. This will soften the decal and pull it closer to the paint and into the grooves.
    You always should put 2 or 3 glossy coats on every model you decal to create a smooth surface, apply the decal, and than coat it with gloss, satin or flat.

    I did a little tutorial on detailing, painting and decaling models and you might want to check out the decaling section.
