Kansas City Southern GP40 4752 from an Atlas Model
This model started out as an undecorated Atlas GP40. I rebuilt the
pilot faces to better represent the prototype. I drilled out Details West ditchlight castings to take operating ditchlights and modified the mechanism and frame accordingly.
Also added were various details such as lift rings, new horn, antenna, speed recorder, etc etc.
The model was finished off with Scalecoat II paint custom mixed to KCS gray and Floquil engine black. The decals are Microscale...including the handrail striping.
I lightly weathered the unit to represent a fairly clean and well maintained unit.
