Default Celebrating the Bi-Centennial...again

Hey all,

I've been whittling away at this project for a couple years and now it's finished.
This is a USA Trains GP38-2 modified to represent DT&I's version of thier Bicentennial unit.

I was making this a normal orange DT&I unit but after seeing Michael Haworth's ATSF Bicentennial SD45-2 I decided to do up the DT&I's version.
Lots of modifications on this one.

Enjoy!

That,s one good looking engine. The color combination looks good together.

Nice job. Sure brings back memories when I was working on the RR and saw all the Bi centennial units back in 1976. Later RJD

Nice job. I would be hesitant to do the intricate masking which you pulled off.
