Modeling an N&W (or NS) High Hood SD40-2

Steps 004 and 004A


CAUTION: Always use sharp tools when removing unwanted plastic from your shell, but please remember to be safe to prevent unwanted accidents. Please work deliberately and slowly so as not to damage the surrounding plastic or any of the details near the hatch.

Step 004

Remove the dynamic brake blister from your shell to prevent damaging it. Using medium size drill bits (50), drill a series of holes around the inertial filter dome and then using a sharp blade, connect these holes so as to remove the unwanted plastic within the borders of the Kato filter hatch.


Step 004A

Carefully remove all evidence of the Kato inertial filter hatch from your model being careful to leave approximately 1/8" on all four sides and then sand smooth.
