    This engine was really a trial run to see how well I could pull off a warbonnet scheme. I think it turned out alright. I have a few more coming soon and I think they will turn out better. I learned several tricks with this engine to make the others better. Custom made decals just for this project.

    Excellent paint job, and I hope you'll share the finished product as well!

    Wow! Awesome! And I greet your impatience as ATSF units will unavoidably be released by AZL one of these days. ;)

    Complete with some Budd streamliners to go behind them. MRC has an article to print stripes that would simulate the SS panels. Used by some RR's to have something on smooth sides to match.

    Doing this paint scheme on this engine had nothing to do with AZL releasing it sooner or later. It was something I wanted to do.
