How dare you say thta about the Daylight scheme!!!! I personally like your kitbash id level out the shells more tho...


Stay off the tracks!
I like the Daylight scheme... that's why it hurts to see it looking as dirty as a typical SP "I go through tunnels" loco.


Diesel Detail Freak
The only real pointer, is try to use undec shells when splicing, then you can putty the seam, and the paint over it will mask what you did to the shell.


Ok thanks you guys for the tips & replies.Did the SP ever use the E9A's in Freight Service I also will be making another E9A in the Scarlet Bloody Nose Look.
