"Tweaking" the White River Junction Coaling Tower - Follow Up

Bernie posted a note asking why I didn't include a picture of the completed, modified White River Junction coaling tower in my post on that topic. I meant to, and even took the pictures, but I forgot to include them in the post! 
After we pulled the assembled model out of the laser it needed some touch up painting - but once that was complete there was no evidence of the "surgery" that changed the rectangular CV herald into the correct square one. (Again, this was only an issue with my pre-production sample model that Bernie built - the production run kits are all correct OR you can build the tower without a CV logo since it's a standard Roberts & Schaefer design.)
Here's the tower positioned in White River Junction yard.
And, a closeup of the herald:

That's a very cool coaling tower, and what a great technique to get the correct logo on there :)
