Chicago North Western GP 38-2 from an Atlas GP-38 Model
CNW GP-38-2 4707 in real life was built as a GP-38. In 1991 it was rebuilt to GP-38-2 standards
by National Railway Equipment and delivered to the CNW.
This model was built from an Atlas GP-38. I stripped and redetailed with such items as a DW plow
and an indentation in the nose where lowered headlights once existed to better represent CNW 4707.
Painting involved using modelflex UP armor yellow and CNW dark green. The underframe 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.
