    Nothing much really, it's still the regular two-pantograph electric loco manufactured by Siemens that I reskinned. That is what you meant, right?

    Did you reskin the whole loco or just change the numbers?

    The loco you show is an AC Vectron, on Polish railways DB use a DC Vectron (you can tell by the pantographs).

    This might help you..

    Oh. Yeah, I did reskin the whole loco. The original model was a DSB reskin of CJ187's model, but I asked CJ for releasing the model. It should be on the DLS soon, but if you want, I can give a CDP variant.

    It should. There is a FEC 4-8-2 I could do using the same technique.
    Thanks by the way.

    What software do you guys use, being able to reskin seems like a good skill to have and I want to give it a try.

    Paint.NET is a good start, but GIMP, Photoshop, and PaintShop Pro (if that's still around) seem to be the popular ones. I like using Paint.NET for linework and logos, Photoshop to put it all together, and GIMP for weathering.

    Awesome thank you. Would you say it's an easy thing to learn? Also does it require any sort of artistic talent?

    I use Skecthbook. It's ok for reskinning on a Mac, but I think the other softwares work better on Windows.

    I'm okay when it comes to artistic talent, however, I've noticed improvements in my City of Truro and Vectron reskins. I think it means I'm getting better!

    I also run a mac so I'll have to do a little research. Hopefully it doesn't take too much talent because a stick figure can be a challenge for me sometimes
