Default Upgrade and repaint of a big hauler 4-6-0

I just received my new subframe for my old 4-6-0.

As I'm going to install RC and batteries in it, I decided to repaint it as well.

I really didn't like the maroon/silver and gold paint job.
The maroon fields on the cab and tender were masked.

I washed all the parts thoroughly with dish washing detergent and then primed with red etch primer.

Then a coat of Stynylrez black primer.

I went for a black, gold and maroon finish.

I have the smokebox left to paint in graphite and then the interior walls green.

The repaint and conversion to the new chassis is almost complete.

There was a bit of a problem with fitting the air tanks though...

I had to move the tanks 1/8" to the rear to make them clear the cylinders.





The tender will get some weathering as well.





I cut the power pickups in the loco to prepare it for the RC conversion.

The tender will get the batteries, rx, esc and connections later.

Graffas,
Very nice.
Tell us about the lining and lettering please.
One large decal, or many small ones, or something else?
Cheers,

That's the only difference between the regular chassis and the Anniversary version. Don't ask me why!

Thanks, those are the original linings and signage.
I masked it off before repainting the loco and tender.

I designed a kerosene headlight for it:


It's printed and is currently being painted.
