Hi,

Another set of photos of a project built for a friend that bought this model on the Internet.
The model represented a Brissoneau Diesel Locomotive Class 1200 from CP (Portuguese Railways) in the standard orange/brown colour scheme, but my friend was a little surprised (not to say disappointed) with the overall looking of the model.
The first set of four photos clearly shows the challenge I had to deal with.
Saying that, he ask me what I could do to provide a second change to this model, mention that it would be a good idea to take this opportunity to apply a different colour scheme, used by Ferrovias Company, who operates now former CP Brissoneau Diesel Locomotives Class 1200.

The new yellow paint scheme was applied and I created the all set of decals applied to this model.

One of the functional couple was removed and instead a more realist one (but not functional) was installed.
I used the Roco Locomotive Detail Set (Ref. 40014) that provided the not functional coupler was well as other accessories that added a more realist look to this model.

























A story with a happy end!

Hope you like it!.


Thanks.
Regards,
