    Absolutely fantastic! Great job!
    Totally agree Don. I think the posters of "Pristine" models are harking back to real model trains before the hobbyist started weathering them? Research ANY wagon or loco image and up comes a load of pictures of models. Some of these look so toy like and the accuracy of their colour schemes is sometimes verging on ludicrous. Sadly some of this phenomenon makes it into uploads here too.... ...still "horses for courses" ?

    The weathering on those locos is outstanding! Each to their own & all that, but I just love seeing locos that have differences beyond their road numbers. That is really outstanding work.
    Cheers!

    Will these units include a new soundset as well?

    Yes, as with all the others I intend to have a soundset to accompany them. It will probably be released a little earlier than the P42s will since I've run into some complications that set things back farther than I'd like.

    Texture work has slowed down greatly due to PC issues with trying to move from one computer to a new one but the sounds are almost ready. I've made a quick video showing some of the cab audio. I'll try to make a more detailed video later on showing the more of the inside and outside.

    Getting back into things with the P42 set after a very disappointing canceled move to a new computer which was supposed to speed things up, but instead brought them to a halt. Here is a quick update shot of the F/A itself, showing the progress of the new coupler being mapped. Large checkers are the mapped bits and the tiny checkers are the areas that have yet to be mapped. Once the F/A has reached it's final stage and all variants have been built and exported, I'll get back to making more units and later finish prepping the soundset to go with them.
