Baldwin DRS 4-4-1500/AS16 Shapeways

Received my shell last night, and it looks pretty good. The layering is minimal, so it should clean up nicely. I will have to figure out what to use for the screens, but that should not pose a problem. I will try to get some pics tonight, but with Thursday nights being pretty full already, it may be Friday.

What chassis are you using for this? RSD-4/5? I've been wanting one of these (SP of course) for years and I'm really interested in seeing your progress  :)

Wheels look evenly spaced.  Not RSD.

A Kato RSC-2 chassis?

Heh, I looked at this picture for some time before I noticed that it had been only three days since the last velociraptor incident.  :trollface:  Looks good, Iain!  Can't wait to see it in NS Ry. paint.

Would that shell work for an AS-616?

Thinned down to fit.

Yep

Working on decals; trying to find a font that matches the NS font for next step.



Drawing them in Cad at full size; turns out the yellow stripe is right at a foot tall.  Also need to work on color matching it; the only photos I have of the NS Baldwins when they're clean are black and white.

Iain,

Can you use any guidance from the Norfolk Southern heritage unit #8114?  There's plenty of pictures of that.
