    Thanks!
    Ordered the second set.
    Did you cut the stripes down thinner or use as is?

    Why do we need two sets? I used large nose logo and it comes 1 per set.
    You are right, I thinner the stripes down, yellow form Microscale is the best.
    Are you planning to do supper details?

    I'm confused. I have plans for the extra sheet.
    No super detailing planned.

    100 ton off road dump truck

    I set both unit next to each other for comparing. The big one is N scale and the other is perfect for Z in my opinion. It is less than three bucks, just do some minor modification and weathering to make it alive. If it fits in your... get it like someone said " see it get it before..."

    PM me for info on where to get those CAT trucks, I just received 6 of them for $2.99 each from an un-named hobby shop, but Trainboard's advertising policy forbids us from openly telling the name of the hobby shop in posts.

    They are large, and look like an HO Scale vehicle, but they are supposed to represent one of those huge 30ft tall mining monsters. Look at the cab and the access ladder up the radiator in front.

    These ARE great vehicles. I received a few for Christmas.

    I sure wish I had your weathering talents to make mine come alive like yours though. Those look fantastic!

    Finally I got them done and I will run in next show.

    Some modification had made to match prototype, basic details added and CN's typical bell, F unit single headlight also added and modified. Now I will need another GP9 to make a good set.

    Hien, those very sharp. Your work is always inspiring to see. If you don't mind sharing what paint did you use, the finish and masking is very smooth.
