    I have had a few of these cars unbuilt for years and have decided to do them in Frisco colors.
    The paint is Scalecoat MW grey, The decals are similar to the Oddballs 170 sheet (many differences). I did one in all Grey and another with the bottom Black. Anyway still have a few to build. And may end up repainting a bunch of Gan-green ones too. My picture of the 81934 shows the SL-SF lettering drooping, it pained me to duplicate that. All the other shortcommings are mine alone.

    Tom -
    I had one lettered for N&W, but the hoards got it during our estate sale last September. Nice looking car though some of the details are a bit oversize as usual.

    Thanks David- I appreciate it.

    Thanks Steve- It is a Walthers kit. Been rolling around on my MRR for 15 or more years just the wrong color. After a while drying they will get an appropriate dose of dirt.

    Thanks Sherrel- No, U DA MAN.

    Thanks Ken- I just dont have very much in the way of eastern roads on this outfit, I really need to do better.

    Guess my eyes are not quite what they used to be (neither is any other parts as well)? Finally .. I enlarged the photo and was able to discern the "drooping" of the 'SF'. I doubt very much if I would have ever noticed it!
    Very nice, TOM, I especially like the color youh ave chosen - and I like the lighter undercoat better than the dark.
    In spite of all this -- Rule #1 applies!
    Carry on, Sir!
