Work progresses on an E7, KCS #20

The work on the E7 is almost complete. Here are some pics.

First, with the basic flat white paint from yesterday.

Second, with the flat black trim added and the decals applied.

Third, this decal was the hardist one to apply.

I still have to apply the finishing touches such as grime and rust

Looking good man, and remember a messy work station is a happy work station I think. Works for me anyways.

Looks like the Florida tornados passed by the corner of your layout also.... The upside down cars are a nice touch.....
