    I'm kinda new to this hobby and I was wondering if anyone out there could recommend someone to do a custom paint job. I need to get an e6/7b dummy unit and have it painted for the Milwaukee Road. I've searched every hobby shop on the net for an item like this and also ebay but I haven't had any luck so far so I guess I'll have to go the custom route.

    I don't know where you are located; but there are a couple of shops here in Upstate New York that do nice custom work. One is a couple of young fellows from my NRHS Chapter who are just getting started. You can find them on the net at The other one has been around for a number of years, but he has done several custom jobs for me. This one is Rock River Model Hobbies, on the net at I can recommend either one, as I have seen (and have) their work.

    I'm in Newport News, VA and Upstate New York is fine. I'll get in touch with both of them.

    Thanks again, Tom

    Topkick - if you aren't in a terrible hurry, take a look at . You'll see why I said about "hurry" when you go there. This guy does some superb work, and might be worth waiting for
