Right now, with some off time - I'm trying out Paint.NET.
I've got a plug in which will stretch images, and in this helmet the S didn't come out great. I recreated the front of the loco above the mask - and it turned out similar to Michigan's colors (which are similar to CSX).
This was a request and I hope it came out okay...
I also made a reverse of the helmet... I'm still learning this whole paint.net deal... I even added a light for the front of the helmet!
Update: I decided to make a Montana Raillink helmet. They're our neighbors to the north here in Idaho, so I thought I'd make it worth my while! BWAH!
On the UFLAccess forum, user Tank played off of my Norfolk Southern Helmet idea by saying that using a Corporate Sponsorship would be perfect for the Norfolk team.
So, the past few days I decided to expand on that part of the idea and see where it would take us. I used the adidas team uniform builder to make the basic shell. Then I found a picture of a Norfolk Southern locomotive and used the "catfish" design from the front of the cab and incorporated it into the front of the jersey. I also took the Norfolk Southern nameplate and used it for a stripe on the sides of the jersey and used the thoroughbred head symbol on the pant.
Update/request: If someone from Norfolk Southern decides to use the design, I'd like at least 2 of each (maybe more) with the number 99 on it. Just sayin'! I doubt that will happen, but just sayin'!
