This is my newest stuff added to my 0n3 DRGW rooster, an old brass caboose from Pacific Fast Mail, I bought in ebay for less than $ 120, paint job is very nice, but I don´t like the weathering it has, monochromatic and in some areas is heavier than the others, looks like the original owner did a quick weathering with an airbrush in about 10 minutes. So, am thinking in paint again and add decals. I will not take off the paint, only remove lettering and airbrush a light coat of oxide red over it. I have to fix some details, uncoupler levers were not glued but I have them and install new Evolution couplers. I was happy when I separate the body from the frame and noticed that the marker lights have bulbs and they work!!

Here is next to another caboose from SJCC







Well, still don´t know when I will start working here, but want to share with you guys!
