Re: Black Boottopping
Decals are infinitely more appropriate on a model than sticky tape designed to be fixed to cars.
I just received some O and N (railroad) scale white and black line decals from Woodland scenics The black lines would work well for boot topping. You get several line thicknesses in the same package.
According my somewhat bad math, Cleveland is 600 feet along. With the bootopping being 20 inches wide a 1:350 model would have a boottopping of close to 1/16 inch. Should be able to find 1/16 black pin striping. Hope my math is right! Thanks
It would be 20 inches +or- . I don't know how wide the prototype was.
Would 1/8 inch be too narrow for the Black waterline boottopping on a 1:350 Cleveland Class Cruiser. TIA
