Saved this one for last 'cause it was a hard paint job to put on this particular model. I still have a few bugs to work out on it. Is it good enough? You tell me! All comments welcome. Cab Car courtesy of 3D Trains.

Thank you both for evaluating my work, it was a hard one matching all those lines, espacially the white stripes! ;D I was wondering how this loco would look wearing an Amtrak Phase V paint job. I'd like it to be close to what the P42's have but different for this loco so I'm going to do one but due to the vent screen problem it will definately will be close but different. I'll post a pic soon.

JJ, your work is unbelievable. Awesome. Can't really come up with words. Can't wait for this one. Hey I noticed you did a fictional Tri-Rail.... any thoughts of doing the same method for us NJT fans? haha

I took the liberty of creating my own stripe and I think it looks good. As soon as I get it presentable enough to take a pic I will post it in it's own thread. This paint job, being fictional I think, will be an oppertunity to make it a design fitting the shiny new MP. I did this with the Amtrak Phase V paint. I made it similar to the P 42 "Shamu" paint but different for the MP with more subtle lines. I am trying to do the same for the NJT by keeping the same colors but creating a unique job for that loco.
