    Header are custom made using solder (and they STILL hang too low!). Hood graphic is a custom decal I made. Built this about 8? years ago.

      Thank you! The number graphics came from a shop in Green Bay.. dug for what seemed like hours what would look good on this. The fender graphics are from stuff I had laying around. The tire lettering is hand painted acrylic.

      Looking at the pic, I agree. Now I have to break out the dremel and re-engineer that setup. Probably going to be a mid-January -20 weather job. :)

      Chopping that tank up is an hour job. Mating a notchback resin body to a styrene frame is probably going to be my winter project... unless I happen to win the lottery, and can get my garage insulated and heated. Then the winter project will be my 1:1 notch :)

        I always envied people who could do that. I never had the patience. I've thrown a few. LOL Now, I don't know WHY, but I can scratch build the coolest model trains you ever saw.
