CNW 4711 from a Life Like Proto 2000 Model
Finished Shots

Construction Shots

This model started out as a Life Like P2k GP38-2 that I dismantled and stripped. Using photos, I redetailed the model with modified pilot faces, new cut bars, new MU hoses, lift rings, antenna, cab air vent, new horn, photoetched sunshades, bell and windshield wipers. Paint was Floquil primer, Scalecoat II white, Testor's Model Master Chrome Yellow, Polyscale CNW green, and Floquil engine black. The decals are from a variety of Microscale sets, and the unit was clearcoated with a semi gloss consisting of half Testor's Dullcoat and half Testor's glosscoat thinned with lacquer thinner.
