    Steve, that's a really great job for your first time decaling, keep up the good work! I remember seeing those engines all the time growing up.
    BTW your work bench is too clean, arghh! -:p:rolleyes:

    Being a gentleman and a scholar, I refrained from illuminating this glaring flaw in your otherwise fine model work ;) Now...if you reeeeeeally wanna look like ya know whatyerduin'...

    OK, OK, I confess, Ray found me out...that was a pic of my workbench last year, before I built those nice footlockers. HOWEVER, even with those footlockers and with less than 12 daze 'til the Hadji Temple Train Show on Sept. 11, here is my progress as of 8/28/04 at 8:03p.m. CT...

    Wow! Look at the progress you've made in a year's time. :thumb:
    Maybe we should do a messy work bench thread update.

    Great job painting & detailing, Steve. But maybe you can explain why so many modelers are putting my initials on their locos & rolling stock. I mean, I'm flattered but it's getting a little embarrassing.
