Russ,

The paint job and lettering are coming along nicely. Your 'fussiness' pays off.

Looking good Russ! You have the airbrush technique down nicely, and your hand brushing is looking good on that critter. I like the custom decals! Any more progress on the switcher or your trackwork? More Photos!!

Nice paint, Russ. A pleasant change, not only from the D&RGW look of the donor model, but also from the ubiquitous all yellow look of so many other critters.

Thanks, Guys...I appreciate your kind comments. I did, however, have a major set back last night. The rear weight screws into the frame, but half of the screw hole is hidden by the motor mount. The manufacturer must have forced the screw in somehow although I've had it screwed in a few times. I figured that it would just be easier to trim back the excess stock on the motor mount, being totally careful NOT to snag any wires leading to the DCC module. Guess what? One of the wires from the module pulled right out of the thing...it must have drooped in the way and got snagged in the spinning cut-off wheel or whatever. So much for THAT module! Boy, did that kill my evening. I went on-line and ordered another one...got a discount...cost under 120.00 to get a new one. Hey...mistakes and expensive setbacks happen, ya know? Well, I'm going to lightly sand out those dark touch-up spots and re-spray that side. I'm also going to take George's suggestion and re-install the sun shades, but this time with very fine fabric. I have the headlight fixture installed and will post photos later!

Russ

Hey Russ,
Sorry to hear about the set-back. Working with such tiny components has to be nerve wracking. Any progress/news you can share with us?
