Nice work (no surprise!!!) Johannes!
Just a couple of tiny remarks:
- The red you used for the wheels and underframe seems a bit too 'rosy'. From what I remember, the red used for the steam locomotive wheels was much darker, of course when it was still visible...see my next remark!
- The Θγ's were never famous for their cleanliness ;) Just add a tiny touch of dirt here and there to make it look more realistic! actually, I doubt it if even during the FS years Θγ580 was as clean as your model!
- Are you sure the specific locomotive you have chosen (580) hat the pump on the smokebox? Many of the ex-FS locos had the Westinghouse pump on the footplate (modified), fireman side...

Otherwise, top-level work!

CHeers,
Josef (Iossif)

Hello Josef

Thanks, you are right, the loco is too clean, but i prefer "workshop fresh-state". A weathering is always possible lather if needed. The pump was on the 580 on the smokebox. I have used a picture from Hans J. Rosenberger from the 70ties. I cannot say where i have found it, so i have no copyright.

Hi Kostas

Nice conversion too!
