  • Change a Virginian A-3 to flavor a Rio Gande L-103

    Helping out a limited modeler with getting a wanted Rio Grande L-103 2-8-8-2 from a Virginian A-3 on a tight budget.

    Removing thick yellow lettering and paint matching the areas with black and adding a better silver.

    Decaling for the Rio Grande and relocating a few original details with a few custom modified parts help bring this model's flavor to a sister unit from a prototype photo.

    Another day of work adding a dozen more details and some heavy weathering would have been the lottery for me, but tight budgets are for future considerations with some thankful modelers.

    5 Crew compliment, interior painted details and heavily modified lead/trail trucks to actually operate properly. I hope some personal motivations help on your next desired upgraded project. Thanx Thom...
