I've been doing some winter camo on the 1/87 scale armor.

I found that troops used paint, dyes, white cloth and even salt to "winter camo" their tanks. With the idea in mind that different armor platoons would camo their vehicles in different ways, I tried different camo "styles" on the different types of vehicles.

Finally got some decoders for the EMD F7 A/B set (Walthers Mainline).

The A unit is # 6714 which ran on AGS trackage and the B unit is # 6180 which ran on CNO&TP trackage (and they are actually lettered as such), so prototypically they most likely would not have been lashed up.




Southern's F7 A/B ratio was 6/3 on the AGS and 7/24 on the CNO&TP.

EMD F7 A/B set ...how do you like the details and drivetrain on their Mainline series F units?
Details are on par with earlier P2K stuff. Grab irons/rails are plastic, as with the earlier P2K, but they are not molded in. Doors don't open.

Drive train seems up to snuff, but the brass flywheels seem a bit "downsized".

I have a few P2K cab units, so maybe I'll do a side-by-side review. :coffee:

Stumpy, have you ever seen a movie titled White Tiger?
If not, it’s a Russian-made movie about a T34 facing off against a Tiger. I’ve no clue if the sounds were accurate or not but the Tiger firing sounded “different.” Anyway, some great views, some interesting tactics, not overly gory, and an intriguing story.
