Chicago North Western SD-40-2 6879 from a Kato Model
This model was built from a Kato SD-40-2. It 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 grab irons with wire ones. I painted this model a while
ago, so I'm not exactly certain, but I believe I used Polyscale CNW yellow yellow and Modelflex CNW 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.
