Chicago North Western SD 40-2 6935 from a Kato Model

This model was built from a Kato snoot SD-40-2 that I stripped. I replaced the snoot with a Cannon and Company 88 inch low short hood, which gave me the correct body phase for the 6935, detailed with such items as a DW plow, MU hoses,and nose bell. 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.
