No problem, cant wait to see the bandit! I think I may do an NS Dash 9 next, as I already started it a while ago. Just alot of painting detail parts.... ALOT.

I love the GTW GP38-2 because you used the correct version of38-2 (phase 4 IIRC) and the correct GTW noodle (extended horizontal line on the G).

I think horizontal lines would look better on the MSU GP40-2 IMHO.

Thanks again AARR! The blue is way too bright though (like my CSX switcher)... I just couldn't find the right tone :P

I guess horizontal would look better... I just did vertical cause it was easier :lol:

Started working on a Penn Central GP40 today also. Scrapped the NS Dash 9 idea... More detail parts that need to be painted grey than I had remembered.

ok so the bandit was a piece of work but i like how it turned out

started with a SOO gp38-2
Image

First I had to make a clean MILW engine befor I could weather it
Image

then the finished bandit which I really like
Image

I had to do a few things to the engine to make it correct, had to move the horn and bell, add dynamic breakes, and of course paint it MILW Road first.

used this picture for refrence
