It was another week of paint and more paint. As you can see from the photos below, the orange wings are completed. "Radio Equipped" now graces the sides of the short hood and the front pilot is painted. The letter "F", which designates the front end of the locomotive, is now properly placed on each side and I painted the front end ladders which will be installed next week. Meanwhile, Phil has been hard at work painting all the grab irons and hand rails. We are down to detail work now which is a good thing because both of us are about burned out on this project. Too much of a good thing, I guess.
