It is my pleasure to tell you that the LRC

Steve Vallis took these before and after photos of his Overland Model brass CN SD40-2W. The factory finish was very shiny and not very realistic so he used "Weathered Black", "Grimy Black" and 'Rail Brown" applied with an airbrush and thinned way down with 70% isopropanol to add years of service to her appearance. Wheel faces were "rusted" as were the couplers, and window glaze was added to the cab. Final coat of "Matt Clear" ties it all together, added a touch of gloss on the fuel tank fill point to represent spillage.
