Champ, I didn't build it, I just painted and decaled it. It started life as an undecorated Life-Like SW900. I had to make the decals, because no one does commercially. I messed up a few sets trying to get them at least presentable. To be quite honest, I was intimidated by the task. Now that I have done one and learned from it, I'm not as scared to tackle another one. Which is a good thing. I have to paint three SW1200s and three GP28s for the AD&N. I also have to paint two SW9s for the A&LM, one of my interchange roads. The other two interchange roads are the Missouri Pacific and the Rock Island. Then the really intimidating part comes. I have to build, paint, and decal an SW1500, two "Paducah" GP10s and two CF7s to complete the roster for the AD&N. Jabil closed that plant about 18 months ago. If you ever get back this way, give a shout.
