SOO Bandit GP40 #2041
Here is one which is like nails on a chalk board to many. Sorry but it is real life and makes an awesome model. This is based on an Atlas produced MILW GP40. My additions include correcting the fuel tank. Moving the horn. All weather window. Air hoses. Grab Irons. Lifting rings, and windshield wipers. I know this should have ditch lights but mother Hubbards cabinet is empty for N scale ditch lights for now. Is anyone paying attention? N scale ditch lights details... PLEASE! The rest is just decals and careful application of weathering to represent what this engine currently looks like 20 plus years after being destroyed by SOO, the true lineage of the engine is starting to creep back through as patches fade and even SOO applied lettering is getting banged up. I am pretty pleased with how this turned out so you get the full 360 tour in photos. Anyone else out there like it as well?
