Kansas City Southern GP40 3019 from an Atlas Model

This model started out as an undecorated Atlas GP40. I rebuilt the pilot faces to better represent the prototype. The model was set up for operating ditchlights and I modified the mechanism and frame accordingly. Also added were various details such as lift rings, antenna, speed recorder, etc etc. Cannon and Company fans replaced the stock Atlas fans. The model was finished off with Scalecoat II reefer yellow and Floquil engine black. The decals are Microscale and Herald King. I lightly weathered the unit.
