Well I finished the mantua pacific project. The ening came into the Blackwater shops with a paint job that looked rather toylike and this is what I did with it: I added the feedwater heater (scratched) sand lines and conduits running from the generator to the headlight. I also sanded off all the cast on handgrabs and replaced them with brass wire. The engine is decaled for Canadian pacific and weathered by misting grimy black over it, and using thinner to streak it a little. I then dry brushed a mix of white (for water stains) and a litte rust around the fittings. I re-built the engine for my boss, I hope he likes it!
