What's Your Latest Project?

My latest project is nearing completion:

Edit:I couldn't fill in any details on the RS-3ms earlier as my RF keyboard's batteries died, Now that I'm in the shop at the desktop here's the poop on them:

Original Atlas/Kato ALCo RS-3s converted to MK RS-3m; nose/windshield, numberboard/headlight housing, battery boxes and airtanks are my own resin castings, turbocharger - TigerValley. Completely rebuilt the fuel tanks, (a lot of grinding!). The stantions are SmokeyValley and handrails and grabs were made to fit by me.

I used MDC/Roundhouse RS-3 walkway/pilots and redid the pilots to more accurately represent the D&H units.

Tip: The numberboard housing was cast with clear Envirotex resin, so the numberboards can be lit more easily, the headlights were drilled out to accomodate microbulbs.

Tip #2: The steps on the battery boxes were made with a piece of Evergreen channel strip stock.

What's up with that EMD sitting behind those 2?
It belongs to a friend and it's a Guilford ( :eek: puke! :D ) renumber of a D&H "blue dip", (Athearn BB, remotored, rewheeled, constant lighting & awaiting more details; shields, grabs and all the pilot stuff).
