Chicago North Western RS 2 54 from a Kato Model

This model was built from a Kato RS 2 that I stripped, redetailed and repainted. Not much detail wise to this unit except new grab irons, rebuilt pilot faces, lift rings, and a beacon casting from Details West. Painting involved using Scalecoat II CNW Yellow and Polyscale CNW Green paint . The underframe was finished with Testors Modelmaster Acryl semigloss black. All handrails were gritblasted to prevent paint chipping. The decals are Microscale, and the overcoat is half Testor's glosscoat and half Testor's Dullcoat thinned with lacquer thinner.
