Here you go Simon , I was holding out on ya!! Warbonnet FP45 in as delivered paint for passenger service. The roof needs weathering!




John,
The Programming Perl book is pretty neat, working my way through it  ;D

By the way there is something significantly incorrect with the FP45, can you spot it?

Nah Steve had it.. it's on a C30-7 mechanism with a GE fuel tank and low mount brakes on the trucks - should be high mount. The horn is correct as far as the prototype shots I have. The Yellowbonnet one will get the aircon and single mount horn etc  ;D ;D

You need to make a sky board to put behind the diorama you used for the completed models, I think that would help set them off nicely.

And yes I've been making my photo diorama, hence no progress on the SDL39. I got a bit further tonight, but I would like to have it done by SNFF, I don't want to rush it though so we'll see how it goes.

Still a while away from finishing this one. Still a progress shot to show where I'm at with this.
