    I'm wanting to make two of these.
    Where would one start kitbashing from? :confused:
    I don't need an EXACT match (I don't count rivets that small ;) ),
    just close enough.
    So... any thoughts on things to acquire to
    stitch together?

    Oh,yea you can find it here: EMD GP20D

    Also, this is to be N Scale. :rolleyes:

    Well you could start with an LifeLike GP20 Chassis as the lengths are pretty close 56'2" for the 20 57'2" for the GP20. 0.075" in N scale ;)

    Hmmm...
    That's right! Life-like did those.
    Huh! Won't take much. Just shift the cab... a little fiddle with the
    cab itself... Thanks!
    :D

    The way the cab sticks up reminds me of a chicken waiting for its head to be chopped off.
