    Nice! but it looks like you used the Paint shop pro Fill in tool, I think you want to use the change color tool so you Don't lose and Details in the Skin like the door panels and latches. Oh! and you may need to cut the brightness on that too! or else use some sunglasses

    so this is round 2 its a little frustrating trying to figure out where everything is mapped at and having to fire up the sim everytime you want to see your progress.

    But tell me what you guys think i like this one better, i'll finish it up tomorrow.



    I got to fix this one but I'm to tired to do it tonight



    i don't know how the ladder on the butt got white rungs and black rungs



    Nikos I'm using Photoshop to reskin. that undec would be alot of help.

    Jessie those that you did look great

    I lived next to the KCS mainline through Louisianna in the early '80's (F unit slugs! Wohoo!), and the general consensus was they didn't even wash these things BEFORE they painted them white!
