Great look and an easy way to weather an EMD Geep. I'm definitely going to have to try this one out. I just wanted to point one thing out though and that was regarding the fuel filler cap. On an EMD like this one the place where they fill the tank is at the very top right corner of the tank. It is a neck protruding out with a red cap on the end. The area where you thought was an option on the tank where sometimes a round fuel gauge is inserted that includes a dial. Another place that makes a mess on the tank is at the end of the main Reseuvoir tank. There is a condensation spitter valve. You may hear it in the sound decoder when the unit is idling. It will spit out an oily water mix all over the top of the tank and will often run down the sides of the tank. 

Great work as always.
