Back to the aluminum roof, but over a .010 liner.

My wife picked an 'industrial' orange for the trim on the catwalk and pilots.

I may do the doors in this color, too.

White handrails and grabs.

I like the idea of using some orange for the trim and doors. 

Should show off very well.

Enjoying a build in this scale.

Nice green.

Improved pilots and the start of handrails.

Test fit new pilot.  Window framing.

Air hoses are aluminum wire,
the ends are mashed to create a credible connector.

Probably going to glaze the old fashion way,
clear styrene glued to the back of the frame.

Any more kinda exceeds the intent of the model,
which is not to be a fine detailed loco.

Scale is a bit ambiguous on the loco.
The intent was to look decent for use in F, G, H scales.

The cab is a big oversized for H, for instance.

I'm settling in on H (1:24) because it's easy to do the math.  :)

So I will borrow a term from the R/C airplane crowd:  "stand-off" scale.
Which in general means it looks right, unless you look too close.
