Well let me start with a photo that I tried to post on last week's Photo Fun, but since I had trouble with the photo link I will re-post it here.



This is my new purchase :)

This pic was somewhat tricky to get. It was taken from the roof of the Midtown Consolidators shipping office.

Actually I donno if the scale of that guy is good comapred to the loco, since I don't see people on real ones. So I tried to guess a person's height on the loco. I took a closeup shot of my RS-3, found a guy that could fit the position and had the good lighting to match with the loco, and then fitted him in there :)

Wow, well here's a start. I detailed this unit for a member of another forum, for half the value of an Athearn RTR CP AC4400. The other half will be used in the future towards a super detailed, and custom painted DM&IR SD45-2.

Nicely done, but if you notice there's some thing that looks a little funny in that picture. Let's see if you can tell me what it is :)
