Let us help you get started . . .
We've assembled a special kit with vital components you'll need to create a contest-winning model. Starting with a beautifully detailed Walthers HO EMD SD70ACe locomotive, the Micro-Mark team has created a custom set of ready-to-use, full-color, water-slide decals replicating the 4141's distinctive lettering and flag graphics, plus custom-made dry transfers for the cab and number board numerals. We've also compiled a set of high-quality acrylic paints from Acrylicos Vallejo to accurately capture the unique color scheme of the 4141 and Air Force One. You do not have to purchase our kit to win . . . we just want to help you get started!
