So here is my situation, I have two 2 rail Atlas O Bangor & Aroostook GP-9's that I need repainted and relettered for the Nashville Chattanooga & St. Louis. I've already stripped the engines of their radiators on top to make them appear to look more like GP-7's, because the NC&StL only had GP-7's. I also relocated the horns to the proper locations to match the NC&StL's prototype, as well as added the proper headlights.
So now I just require a skilled painter to repaint and decal these engines. It's a relatively easy job, just stripping the paint, spraying the trucks and fuel tank black as well as the hand rails, and the body maroon. I already have the decals for the yellow stripes and the lettering. I just have zero expertise when it comes to repainting and lettering a locomotive.
Can anybody refer a good custom painter?
I need to go from this...
To this... (this is a HO model btw)
