    First are 3 photos of an O&W Y-2 Mountain in HO. It is a Nickle Plate products model that is waiting for the tender logos.

    Next, is an O&W W class 2-8-0. She too is a Nickle Plate Products model and is almost complete. Being that the cab interior was completely detail with separate parts, I detail painted it with needles and brass bezels on the gages.

    Lastly (but certainly not leastly) is Marty's Fujiama Erie Berkshire. She has had the airbrush weathering completed but now needs to be drybrushed and detail painted.

    Hey Marty, when she does get finished, she will be tested on Gary's layout. Hmmmm, do you think there may be a couple of double header shots? You had better work out a lease agreement with Gary before she gets there!! Hey Shamus, send those big guys out here!

    I save these pics to have references for realistic weathering. Thanks for posting them!
