    just finished these today. they are a pair of Life Like P2K GP9's that i detailed, painted and decaled. i tried to match the pictures on the espee site and they came out pretty well. my lighting really sucks so these photos arent all that good. i added that new flourescent light and it doesnt help a bit.

    Looks great. The weathering is excellent! Your lighting isn't that bad. Fred

    Very realistic weathering, trainworm! These Espee units look really as dirty as they normally did! :D :D :D

    The lighting isn't bad at all, since we can see all the details clearly. Often the fine details on the trucks and along the belly disappear in murky shadows - here we see them very well. :thumb:
