After TrainClown's CN yard pictures, the comments about the GMD-1 he photographed reminded me of a kitbash I'd tried over a decade ago; one that was eventually shelved, and practically forgotten. There were a couple of releases of this unique ugly-duckling locomotive made. All wre brass, prohibitively expensive, unavailable, and terrible runners. I thought they were really neat, and wanted one. I had seen some versions done...none well; usually 2 bashed SW-7s on a GP 9 frame. Here's a picture of where my kitbash came to a halt, and in the next threads, I'll explain what I did, and why I gave up.
