V200: D E U T S C H E   B U N D E S B A H N

The paint on the V200 Maerklin 3021 is showing signs of its age and eventful life.

This doesn't look particularly good as a close up, but the impression of the locomotive improved dramatically from merely fixing up the lettering on the side. At the moment I'm not planning to do a wholesale repaint of the body of the loco but rather leave most of the scruff marks. After all, it's almost 60 years old. It's allowed to have a few wrinkles.
