Woodpackers (DRGW)

According to MBK and BLW the DRGW (Trainworx/FVM) Woodpackers are in.  MBK has photos of a model.

Anyone have one?? Is it really that color in the MBK photos?  It's hard to tell on the waffle placement how well this was rendered??  Anyone?

I have one in hand.  No, it is not the color that is depicted in the MBK photos.  It appears to be the proper D&RGW orange.  The waffles are etched brass applied to the sides prior to painting.  The model rides on BLMA roller bearing truck frames with FVM standard blackened wheelsets, and has MTL couplers body-mounted in FVM #1015-style coupler boxes, so it appears to stand at the proper height over the rail.  The box paper insert has double-branding - two flaps have Trainworx markings and the other two flaps have Fox Valley markings, with the bottom of the box having the markings of both companies.
