Work continues on my Atlas GP7 chop-nose project.  I’ve painted the nose and cab front of engine Polly-S Railbox yellow.   Then I masked that color off and painted the cab sides and rear and the long hood and handrails Polly-S Rock Island Maroon.

The maroon airbrushes on quite flat, so before beginning decals, I applied Micro-Gloss to the entire model before applying any decals.   This is to help prevent the decal film from being visible in places where it is not wanted.    I also painted the air horn and Details Associates all-weather window before applying them to the model.
