Here's one of HO scale engines I modified, detailed, painted and weathered myself. The picture is bad (the colors came out much brighter than real life) but the engine is fairly good.

This is Burlington Northern 6261. She is the only SD38-2 on the BNSF roster that hasn't been rebuilt into something else. The model is Kato, with details west and utah paific detail parts. The paint is a mix of several different brands (waterbase) and the weathering is oil based paint aplied with a dry brush and an air brush.

Here's a little data on the real engine...

Engine---------------16 cyl. EMD 645E Deisel w/ roots blower
Fuel capacity--------3,200 US Gallons
Tracton Motors------D77
Wheel Arangment--C-C
Length---------------68 feet 10 inches
Operating Weight---195,500 US Tons
Builders Number----786187-2
Build Date-----------June 1979
other-----------------Currently equiped for remote control yard service

And here's a link to a picture of the real 6261 http://archive.train...SD38-2/6261.HTM

WOW, that's one heavy locomotive. Does she require 1500lb rail to run on? All kidding aside, she looks beautiful. wink.gif
