ex factory these models look like this...

...all wrong

after some major modifications (nose job, ditch lights with one white 0603 SMD LED in each of them, shorten the fuel tank, Phase 1 dynamic brake on #8714) and with a lot of detail parts from Kato, Atlas, BLMA, GMM and some self made ones and a new paint job they look a bit more like the prototype...









(sorry for the picture quality, they were taken with a phone - I need to buy a new camera)

For a phone they look surprisingly good, I'm starting to see the appeal of rail modelling but I'm able to resist.....
Nice work mate, really good. Would like to see any in progress shots you might have, always good to see other people's methods and techniques.

Top work there Steve; you'd hardly know they're N scale! I really like the addition of the small details like the aircon unit and aerials and grab irons.

Nice subtle weathering too, not overdone like some other people who post SD24s on here... :whistle:

Cheers

Mike
