Chicago North Western SD-40-2 6867 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. It requires some skill to chop one into a model and make it look right. 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.
