ATSF CF-7 2591 from RPP and Athearn parts




This model was built from a Rail Power Products shell with round cab and athearn trucks and drive gears. The RPP shells are pretty barren, and required much cleanup and lots of detail work to present a decent appearance. The detail parts are too numerous to list here. For the yellow, I used Modelflex Santa Fe yellow and for the blue, PolyScale ATSF blue. The trucks are finished in PolyScale Old Silver. The frame was finished with Testors Modelmaster Acryl semigloss black. The decals are Microscale, and the overcoat is half Testor's glosscoat and half Testor's Dullcoat thinned with lacquer thinner. models added to site 4-10-02, updated 5-16-03.
