Put down my Brass!!!
Just thought I would show off one of my best projects. This is currently going to have alot of lighting effects, DCC and Sound.

Sorry for the very crude pics, they came off my Camrea Phone, since im out of a digi cam right now.


*Edit* If not noticable by now, this is an Overland Model.

Model has been Weathered by Heather Clark of "The Train Room" in OR. And a wonderful Job she did!

Kidding, yes with your brass unit, But no worries, I can safely deface an Athearn SD40T-2...


Put down my 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 1940's up(prototypically).
