    Greetings all,
    Here is another SD40-2 on the roster here. Richmond Controls light kit installed and DW AH 191 horn, Detail Associates window wipers, hand bent the brake cylinder lines, renumbered SLSF 956, weathered with chalks and thin airbrush layers. I enjoy these Athearn RTR locos. A lot of fun to detail a bit and have a fairly accurate SL-SF locomotive. 005.JPG 008.JPG

    Outstanding modeling. May I use the nose shot for a mouse pad?

    And thank you Jim for the words, you do such quality work

    This looks great! Would you consider doing a clinic of sorts on this thread or start another one explaining your weathering techniques?

    I am not very good at explaining what I do but I will try on the next SD40-2 in the works
