This one also ready for the Model Master lacquer overcoat followed by wire handrails.

Since the picture was taken, the "air gap" behind the fuel tanks, just behind the cab, was filled in
(photos like this reveal things not noticed before!)

one more thing I forgot; my RSD's have the original Mehano Mechanisms and I even have one that's as quiet as a Kato! you can even add weight over the rear drive shaft and up front in the nose of the shell. like I said, my Zebra stripe RSD's got the attention of a lot of modelers and show goers as well at the Oklahoma City Train Show too.

you have a gorgeous RSD15 there! I have four ready to be painted and put back together and one more Zebra stripe to do and I'll have a prototype fruit block of 45 cars hauling the first picking of the California strawberry crop!
