    Do you guys think that repainting SD70ACe's would be good enough? There are some visual differences between ACe's and ACU's, but they do look similar.

    While I would never claim to be an expert, I did try to research a bit (mostly from the NSDash9.com page) , and it sounds like the external upgrades (w/ the exception of the cab) were minimal. Seems to me that using the Ace model would be ok.

    One COULD cheat and do these units from an SD70Ace but it wouldn't be near accurate. Remember, the 70Acu was rebuilt using SD90/80 Mac units. Not only is the long hood different, but also on a longer frame. For those good at creating FAs, you could take an Ace cab and graft it on too a 90Mac long hood.

    here for me, the difficulty is being to adapt the radiator to the ready-made models.
    part of it is almost ready.

    Hello again from LF_RailFan ...

    A set of SD40M-2's from a Midwestern shortline struggle to pull fertilizer and sand hopper freight cars past the Victorville South Interlocking.

    Sharp looking power, Zach. Always loved the yellow/black color combination on engines.
