Aww, thanks again. I don’t remember what the base coat on the denim jacket is, but color was built up in layers of dry brushing and/or semi-dry brushing several successively lighter blue hues of acrylic craft paint.
Milwaukee Road emblem on hat is N scale Microscale decal. I don’t know that MILW ever issued caps which were red, but the clothing colors are ones I wear, and I have a red cap of generally similar shape from Into The Wind kite company, and decades earlier, one with Dodge on it.
If that electric steeplecab in profile pic ever gets more complete, it will be in MILW markings.
Now, need a person in similar seasonal attire for the right side of its cab, to be the engineer/motorman.
Something Korm said brings Wallace and Gromit to mind, but I simply can’t imagine what he would have said that would do that …
