It seems I'm on fire recently after a long hiatus doing work for my job. I took the last few days to try to complete a few projects that were stalled, mainly a pair of Central Vermont locomotive.
CV 4550 is a neat GP9 that survived in the old green and yellow paint scheme up until almost 1980. I thought it would be could to replicate it.
CV 8081 is a classic Alco switcher I already presented. It is now complete and ready to be assembled and weathered. I had a lot of fun replicating the weird "Safety First" placard on the hood.
More about these two models later. I also hope to replicate someday a caboose thought it could be harder than I would like.
