Chicago & Illinois Midland SD9 from a P2K model

Chicago and Illinois Midland #51 from a Life Like Proto 2000 model.
I stripped a factory painted unit, and redetailed the shell with a new bell, lift rings, all weather window, added Kadee #58 scale couplers, etc etc.
For paint I think I used floquil primer with Floquil Depot Olive for the green (I painted this unit a while ago, so I'm not positive on that). The black is Floquil engine black and the orange is Floquil reefer orange. The decals are by Microscale. The entire unit was then clearcoated with half Testor's dullcoat and half Testor's glosscoat thinned with lacquer thinner.
