Hey guys this is my first post on this forum. I have been doing 1:87 scale drawings on the puter for a few years now and this is my latest work.
First up, my NYCS inspired GDR SD70M

Pilbara Rail C44-9W #9431 (this is an exact to detail drawing, top notch you may say)

Now for the extremely freelanced stuff, the GDRMCo/GDRCo units of my freelanced RR.
24 Class F9's


25 Class SD9

26 Class SD70's (M+B)


GDRCo 26 Class SD70M

GDRCo 27 Class SD70M-2

100yr Anniversary SD70M-2 (The 100yr Anniversary will be celebrated on my Bday, Nov 28th)

28 Class GP40M

29 Class SD45Tunnel Motor-2

And finally the 30 Class MP15DC (hoping to get an Atlas unit for my layout)

Thx in advance for all your comments and stuff guys. TTYL

Mitchell, welcome to the forum. :)

I can only view the text in your post. Can you post the links to your drawings?
Hey, great to see you here! Those are some pretty nice gifs, you must have a lot of spare time! Just a thought: The light gray lettering on the yellow doesn't show up too well, maybe darken it or make it black.

That's a lot of interesting "what-if" schemes you have there Mitchell. Some of your private designs look pretty challenging to paint - have you thought about test-painting some old Athearn B.B. shells?
