    ok...I'm good at starting projects, lets see if I can finish an easy one.

    I had a beat-up old Rivarossi Heisler in my parts box, plus a couple deisel shells that I originally picked up to practice painting on.
    So, I'm going to take most of the long hood of the Alco shell, replace the smaller doors with those off the GP shell, and create a deiselized Heisler.
    Unlike the prototype deiselized heisler, this one will be run by connecting the deisel engine to an air compressor to drive the cylinders (not really...but that's the impression I want to give).

    Here's the Paintshopped version to give me an idea how it'd look:
