Soo Line SDL39 6208 from an Overland Model
Finished Pictures

Construction Pictures:

This is a "what-if" model. Soo Line never repainted any of their former Milwaukee Road SDL39's before being sold to Wisconsin Central.
This is an Overland Models brass SDL39. The only real detail work before painting was the installation of Overland ditchlight castings and modification of the frame to accept the additional wiring form the ditchlights.
Unit was grit blasted to ensure good paint adhesion, and was then painted with Floquil primer, Testor's Model Master Guards Red and Floquil engine black.
Decals are from several Microscale sets.
Clearcoated with half Testor's Dullcoat and half Testor's Glosscoat mixed with lacquer thinner.
