Thank you all for your comments.  I could try to smooth out the deflector a little  but I don't think it will ever look quite right.  My plan is to turn this AT&SF version of a NYC Mohawk into the proper NYC livery.  I'm hoping to accomplish that with out a total repaint but just removing the lettering from the engine and the very large number from the tender.  Maybe while I'm doing that I'll work on the deflector.  Any one ever strip the lettering of an MTH steamer?  Any hints would be appreciated.

A light wipe with lacquer thinner does the trick,.....it won’t remove the black,...just do light wipes until the letters or digits disappear,..
