    This SD70MAC began as an undecorated Kato model. I had seen pictures of one on Kato's website and decided to give it a try. I had liked that locomotive so much that i wanted to have one just like it. Props to the artist who made the original, i do not remember the fellow's name, and i tried looking it up in the Kato gallery again but could not find it :curse:


    Anyways, This was made before the new swoosh painted locos were released or even announced by Kato. Sorry for the bad quality, i need to stop using my phone for pix hehe. It has tons of grab irons, MU hoses, Cut levers, Sunshades, mirrors and ofcourse a custom paint job with swoosh decals.

    S-Sam; Congrats on not letting the lack of a R-T-R model stand in your way...a beauty finish on a fine loco - the phone camera cannot disguise your careful craftsmanship ! Bob C.
