          Job well done Borislav, do you plan on the Essential Workers unit as well? And being you are on these ACe and M-2 kick, plans for any KCS units, particularly the veterans unit?

            Thank you very much, guys, for all the kind words!

            This is the first paint scheme I am working on in 4K resolution. This enables me to add much more details to the locomotive. Having that in mind, I might redo all of the previously released paint schemes in 4K, as well. However, I still can't be sure about that one, as this requires one important step - finding enough good, detailed photos of the locomotives in question. I am not talking about those beautiful photos you can see at railpictures.net, but the close-up ones where you can see all the decals, panels and stuff. Those are very difficult to find, and I have to spend a lot of time searching for photos and videos of that kind on the internet.

            Therefore, any future project that I have on my mind depends purely on this factor. The Essential Workers unit, I believe, will be possible to do, as I already have good photos of this locomotive.

                The main textures have been finished! However, I have decided to take a shot at weathering effects. This is something that I have never done before. If it does turn out right, I am going to include two sets of textures for this locomotive: clean and dirty.

                This is what I have been able to produce so far (upper body), but this is still a work in progress:

Knowing nothing about this ( except coming from an art perspective -- MA in photography ) -- try less precision, more "smudging" -- more of an "accidental" application -- if that makes any sense. Again, just fine work on the models...and of course the most excellent cabviews.

                          Thank you very much for all the support, guys!

                          If all goes well, I believe I will upload the locomotive tomorrow. There will be three sets of textures included: clean (very light/default weathering effects), moderate weathering effects and heavy weathering effects.

                            Hi, R. Steele ,

                            Your suggestion is very good!
                            here in my region, aging trends.
                            the idea of a KISTBASHING painting is good, but everyone has a particular view on "dirty or aged" painting

                            The base model with new painting will give each one a way of how they want the action of time on the painted model.

                            once again...... good job, FI=Ghost's

                              The locomotive has been finished. It contains three sets of textures: standard/clean textures, textures with moderate weathering effects and textures with heavy weathering effects.

                              Due to the fact that I am now using textures in 4K resolution, the size of the .zip file is 120 MB and now I am facing a problem. I cannot upload it directly and I have not been able to figure out this FTP thing.

                              Is there someone who could help me with uploading this thing?

                                MRL SD70ACe 4407 has been uploaded to the Files Library as a two-part zip pack. You need to download both parts to unzip the files.
