"What can I say? My loco looks even better in real life than it did in the photos! The realistic effect I was hoping for has been achieved, and I couldn't be happier with the overall look of the model. Removing the gloss finish and having the loco in satin just makes it look so much better, and the lining just sets it off beautifully. Honestly, I can't stop looking at it! All the service I've received from you has been excellent. I genuinely can't wait to take the loco to our next group meeting." - JM 04/16
