    Well, Winter is a good time for new development, custom and projects and here we go: this is my new custom built SD40-2 NS high hood with typical, noticeable bell. Any command, concerned input are welcomed.

    Regards,
    Hien.

    Hien,

    Looks great! I like the bell. How do you manage to keep the holes for the hood steps that accurate in line?

    Very nice! I have to say I like the old high hoods on the NS. The old whales look mighty fine. :D

    As you see, I took more time to add all the data, warning side decals matching prototype to body shell as well.

    Hein, what a beauty! I am most impressed! I have an AZL SD40-2 high nose in Southern that would look great paired with your loco!

    Those Conrail Rebadges came out pretty good Hien! The NS doors on 3352 really look cool! :D
