    Hello,

    My ultimate goal of this fleet is to make them look like the prototypical ones. I have begun by painting the hand railings white. The step lead edges are next. Here's a few photos of my progress. The Four are: Kato C44-9W, Athearn SD70M, Kato SD70MAC Flare Radiator, Finally Kato SD70ACe.. with few new toys on the way (2xAC4400CW's).


    Next will be weathering, however I am debating on the method of weathering. (airbrushing or pastel chalks) My previous experiences in the HO scale world I used Airbrushing, so I'm new to Pastel Chalks. Can any one give me a few pointers on how to use Pastel Chalks?


    Thanks,

    Dan
