Detailing went rather fast after the rivet decals were put on so it is now ready for paint.

After some fine tuning and tweaking its ready for service. The lettering is general white Lehigh Valley lettering from champion found at a show. It had the largest logo of the couple sets I dug up in the past couple months. The numbers are from a herald king caboose set.

I was actually fighting with some cheaper dull cote, being unsatisfied I broke down and bought some testors to be happy with it. I also had to fix a minor growling when running, the little plastic plate over the worm gear was rubbing it and I just removed it. For starting as a brand new shrink wrapped engine when I got it, it sure had a lot wrong with it, like they never tested the model before shipping it out.

At any rate here is the complimentary video set up sort of like a chase with lots of reading traffic in between.
