    How do you take the shell off a Bachmann GP-38-2?

    I bought one of these on Ebay. It runs, but makes an annoying noise that sounds like something spinning is striking the shell.

    It isn't apparent to me whether there are screws holding the shell on or if it's just a pop off. Before I bust the shell trying to pull it off, can someone let me know how it's to be removed?

    Thank you.

    You have to remove the fuel tank. Under it you will find the screws that hold the shell. You may have to remove the couplers also. The tank is just pressed on and will pry off.
