With Stripe.

I really hate to nitpick because you're doing it as a favor but the stripe looks skinny and the font looks small :?

Thanks man, and MQT I cant make the stripe any thicker or else it would go on top of the loco and look stupid, or hit the stripes on the nose.

When the stripe comes off the windshield, let it angle downard a little more (on the same angle as the windscreen/nose line) to just past where you stopped.

But before you do that, make the MARQUETTE lettering bigger within the stripe (see Ypsi's drawings).

It looks spectacular as a paint drawing, it's just a little off the prototype. Make the lettering bigger and then the stripe might not be an issue.
