 I find most Stewart factory paint to be quite less than up to anyone's
minimal standard. One exception was the PRR decorated C630. I too thought
the logo and the lettering down the long hood of the U25B was way huge,
although some of that is distortion from the lens and angle, but even at
that it still appears way to big. Quite a few of those "preproduction"
models are custom jobs. The L&N C628 was absolutely beautiful at shows where
Stewart displayed the unit, but come production time, it was a major botch
job. Not even close to the custom model or even MS decals.
