Chicago North Western SD-40-2 6810 from a Kato Model

This model was built from a Kato SD-40-2 that I stripped. That involved a complete factory paint stripping, redetailing with such items as a DW plow, MU hoses,and nose bell. The nose bell is always a good time. Also, I replaced the Kato cut bars and grab irons with wire ones from Detail Associates. 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.
Model added to site 4-10-02.
