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

Step 017

Carefully file the Kato coupler pocket out until there is only a .010 lip on the bottom of the pocket. This is also a good time to test fit your shell to the chassis and see if your couplers fit into the correct position.   Fill the holes intended for the Kato plow as we won't need them on this model.  Drill the correct size holes for the DW metal MU hoses and air hose.  Drill two # 80 holes as shown and bend the .012 brass wire to be used as MU hose holders.
