Union Pacific SD 40-2 3334 (snoot variant) from a Kato Model

This model was built from a Kato SD-40-2 that I stripped. The unit has Cannon and Company fans fitted, a Cannon brake wheel, MU hoses, operating ditch lights, antenna, cab vent, and eye bolts. Also, I replaced the Kato grab irons with wire ones from Detail Associates and replaced the dynamic T vent with a Detail Associates part. The Mechanism was hardwired for maximum reliability and to accomodate the operating ditchlights. Painting involved using Floquil UP Armor Yellow and Floquil Harbor Mist Grey sprayed over primer and white. The decals are Microscale, and the overcoat is half Testor's glosscoat and half Testor's Dullcoat thinned with lacquer thinner.
