Right idea wrong scale. I'm trying to kitbash an O scale GP engine into a 40P. It will be shorter but I'm not getting too technical. It is only for me anyway. Cutting the pointed long hood end off will be the tricky part.The mounting holes are sooooo close I have to watch how close I cut it. I'm looking for a set of SD 45 radiator fins to use on it(with modifications of course). Hoping to come up with something on here or at Allentown in two weeks.
