These models were sold unpainted. Bob painted his for the Southern Pacific. In general, modelers find that the nose is malformed or misshapen. Originally, these models had wheels gauged to the old NMRA standard for S-scale, so be sure to check them with a NASG wheel gauge. These models were built by Ajin Precision of Korea.
