    The Rushville Rocket, huh? Well, for better or worse, warts and all, I am a fan too.

    This particular engine came factory painted and numbered from Atlas. The paint I used to touch up the details and DB blister was Modelflex engine black, and Polly Scale Acrylic reefer white. I normally prefer Polly Scale because it brush paints better for me, but the Modelflex engine black is a closer match for Atlas factory paint (the Polly scale is a little lighter black), and dullcote with a little chalking blended everything in. I did have to replace some of the decals (such as the striping on the pilot), and for that I used Microscale's Southern diesel set.
