    as you can see, i have finally gone over the line into madness. i had the idea to make my little MDC critter look a little more SP like, and i went a little too far. :D :D

    i gave this poor little guy a plow, full SP light sets, roof mounted bell/air conditioner/horn and beacon. then i added split battery box doors. then i painted it and added decals. it turned out pretty cool looking:D

    Great job [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] trainworm, I'll probably have to go freelance in order to have a critter.

    Also, thanks for the reminder. I've got to outfit my new locos with plows after all it does snow up this way.

    A great idea, trainworm! And beautiful modelling, too. :thumb:

    Only... isn't that critter a little too clean for an SP unit? :D :D :D

    Cool! How does she run?

    I see Horizon Hobbies doubled the MDC price. I guess that's why they broke the link to the model 40 info on MDC's web page :( Where did you get yours?
