    Hi,

    I've tried some pastel chalk on two cars, below the results. What do you think of it ?

    It's my first try, I really could use some piece of advice :) .

    I don't think they look bad at all. Put up a picture of them from a distance, like you would see them on the layout.

    Not bad at all for a first try.
    Why did you erase all the marks such as car #, built date , railroad name etc... ?

    Thanks all for appreciations. I'll post some more pics with the cars (on my unfinished diorama) as soon as possible.

    @Biased turkey : Well, my initial plan was to rewrite all the marks myself, with local Romanian marks. At this moment, I'm still looking for a way to accomplish that :D.
    I have no clear idea what I might use for writing...anybody can help with ideas ?
