Chicago North Western SD-40-2 6902 from an Athearn Model


I did this unit several years ago, but I figured I'd post it continuing with my CNW SD 40-2 project. This model was built from an Athearn SD 40-2. The unit was detailed with such items as a DW plow, MU hoses, grab irons, lift rings, and nose bell. Painting involved using Modelflex UP Armor 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.
