Full markings, as close as possible to the photos in article. Ray (R766ST on the other forums) gave me some HO scale decals that have "Navajo" and the indian logo which look like they will be close to correct size, other lettering I will try my hand at making my own decals.
Eventually I will build a trailer as well, thinking of backdating the Moebius 53' when it comes out.
Thanks guys! Moving to the outside, blue paint on. Some minor "oops" areas but nothing to warrant a trip to the purple power dunk tank! Now another week or so of "no touch", then touch up & red decal stripe along colour separation.
Thanks guys! Slowly, very slowly, getting there with stripe along colour separation and some other items. Navajo decals and sheet of Microscale red decal paper were both given to me by Ray (r766st), am cutting strips about .030 wide for the red stripes.
A good tip I saw on the MTDG site was Model Car Garage photoetched Pete badges painted Testors Dark Red, paint sanded off raised areas & a drop of epoxy placed on top:

Great Job the robert. I use the pete emblems on my rig. They are also available at model express up in Canada. Thats where I get mine from. They also have the Kenworth Etched emblen. I bought the complete set of them. Sure makes for a better appearance on the model. This one is coming along great. Love that old Navajo emblem. Its like a blast from the past.
If anyone is interested the web site for model express is
