    Default ATSF GP39-2

    If I get sick of working on thing, I've got a bunch of other units to work on.

    Being a big fan of ATSF, I've always wanted to make one of these, because it's something of a signature locomotive for that railroad.

    I haven't touched this in a while, but I'd like to finish it, and there's some improvements that need to be made.

    Have no idea what's what with the thread titles.

    Thank you sir,

    Did a few quick updates to the unit, adding a new S3L model, and added rear hoses and a coupler. Need to update texture to suit.

    I'll be pulling some parts from the GP35 FA's I made for Michelle to improve the rear.

    Well, it kinda got out of hand... For some reason, to give the unit a little extra pop, I decided to add a bunch of manual shadows to highlight the various parts...

    Oh boy, that was a challenge. I had to remap all of the details to make it look right.

    Looks great! It reminds me that I'll have to finish my Reading GP39-2 one of these days too. Need to fix the front pilot to be accurate, but it's not too far from being done.

    So let me get this straight. You want to fly on a magic carpet, to see the king of the potato people... and plead with him for your freedom, and you're telling me you're completely sane?

    Getting back to the focus of this thread, I fixed the fans and grabirons and did more weathering work on the roof. Also, it has numbers in the numberboards.

    Something tells me that I won't be seeing that Reading GP39-2 in the File Library.
