Southern Pacific SD45T-2 9344 from an Athearn model

I did this unit last year but just found pictures of it, so I figured I'd add them to my site.
This unit started out as a factory painted Southern Pacific SD45T-2 from Athearn. I dismantled the model. I then added Detail Associates eyebolts, cut bars, MU recepticles antennas, MU hoses, spare knuckles to the rear pilot faces , 206 plows, speed recorders, fabricated sanding lines and truck air lines. Also added were windshield wipers from Detail Associates.
Floquil SP light lark was airbrushed on the underframe and on the handrails after they had been abrasivized and washed. The paint was also used to touch up added on parts. The model was reclearcoated to protect the new paint and to blend all of the paint in. From there the model was reassembled and tested.
