Chicago North Western SD-40-2 6867 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 Testor's Acryl Chrome Yellow for the traditional yellow and Polyscale 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.
