Chicago North Western SD 40-2 6892 from a Kato Model

This unit was built from a Kato SD 40-2 from pictures I had of the actual unit. Details such as the nose bell, lift rings, grab irons, MU hoses and a cab vent were added. This unit was also fitted with a sound unit and operating beacon. Painting involved using Des Planes Hobbies Scalecoat II CNW Yellow for the old yellow and polyscale CNW dark green. The underframe was finished with Testors Modelmaster Acryl semigloss black. The decals are Microscale, and the overcoat Testor's Dullcoat thinned with lacquer thinner. Unit was also weathered.
