Will be finishing the body very soon and then will then put it into 3d crafter and finish it up.
Leave it to be known though, the Alco MRS1 was a hard locomotive to see out of, since the front nose was so much longer then the GP7 front noze, and not to mention side ladders in the way of a very clear view at what's in the way. So, you put a car on the track, it might get hit before you even know it's there.
I've now finished all the railing, all the ladders and after I finish the back plow it will be closer to be going to Crafter. There I will chanfer the edges and try to round them some so the locomotive will be even more like the real thing. After that it's time to try to get the body into the game to test it and try to get it running.
And about the paint job, I don't know the first bit of repainting so if anything the default will be a plain flat gray, military gray some might say. No numbers, nothing but stock paint.
If we work at it we can bring back the 30's and the 60's to Railworks with custom buildings, cars and routes to simulate the era.
Building up the past.
Being a apprentice architect, I learn a ton about building construction and use that knowledge to build my models from as a side hobby.
