Chicago North Western SD-40-2 6845 from a Kato Model


This model was built from a Kato SD-40-2 that I stripped. The unit was detailed with such items as a DW plow, MU hoses,and nose bell. Also, I replaced the Kato grab irons with wire ones from Detail Associates and replaced the dynamic T vent with a Detail Associates part. Painting involved using Des Plaines Hobbies Scalecoat II CNW Yellow and Modelflex 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.
