    nce decoders

    Shoo goo, also works well, when applied the right way, and will also come off if you want it too as well. These wires (just like the circitron wires) are quite fragile. You need to take your time and to be careful when using them.

    My D&RGW SD40T-2 *Brass*

    Ha! No! :D This has the MARS housing on the nose, so it will be a MARS light loco. This unit already has ALOT of brass detail, so im not adding anymore detail to it. To be honest, im not much of a ditchlight fan, so I stay in the mid 80's and farther back eras. My stuff dates back to...

    My "Leaser" project

    I agree, well done so far. :) Im working on a custom Athearn GP39 leaser. Im thinking all grey with Either NREX, or are there any others like this? Would grey be prototypically correct for NREX or maybe even FURX?
