    Here it is after a quick coat of engine black on my layout. Next up is the elimination of the frame mounted air reservoirs and styrene strips to model the extended range fuel tanks. After that, a beacon, correct horn and many small decals that I need to add...

    John - Nice work, and thus far it's a nice step-by-step documentary of how you're going about modeling these. It always impresses me when I see detailing like this in N-Scale. Even if I weren't so ham-handed, I'm afraid that my eyesight is to a point where I would be quite frustrated.

    Please keep the updates coming.

    Best Regards,

    Thank you. It means a bunch coming from one of the admins.

    N Scale is so small, I don't see the flubs until I look at a larger than life pic. I'm going to have to hit the inside surface of the torpedos with sandpaper to flatten out the glue residue. It makes the tube look botched up on the inside. There is very little clearance to glue to the top of the dynamic brake radiators. I was so worried that I would get glue on the outside of the tube that I ignored the inside!

    Maybe #704 (Next week's GP35) won't end up needing repair!

    Thanks again for the kind words...

    Nice work on something so small. It certainly captures the flavor.
    After working on the 7.5 inch stuff - now, even O scale seems small to me.
    I'm doomed!
