Well, I guess I've got some rearranging to do. I set the rear driver as my point of reference because of its proximity to the dropped cab and the desire for the two not to hit each other. I cut the boiler a little long just in case some adjustment was necessary.
Today my computer was tied up so effort went into something other than the cab. I painted wheels. I first mask them and then give them 2 coats of white primer.
Then comes Model Masters spray enamel, Guards Red.
Next I cut out a decal of the gold star.
I also fashioned a coupler into the cow catcher. This is an "O" scale coupler. That's enough for one day.
