Work continues on the TEBC6 slug. I ended up buying a complete SD9 just to get a set of trucks. Its a good thing I did as I ruined of side frames when trying to cut it down. These frames seems solid, until you start cutting into them. I ended up cutting half the height of the frame off as well some off both ends to accommodate the different cab cab and nose arrangements. Cutting both ends also means I lost the screw holes, so these halves are now glued together rather than screwed. Obviously I removed all of the mechanism in the frame, as well as removing most of the gears in the trucks. I also added a “box” to the top of the cab. I have no idea what it is, it is not an air-conditioner. You can see it in this photo. https://www.flickr.com/photos/chuckzeiler/24545992938/ I still have some details to add (all weather windows, beacon, handrails, etc) but those are all post paint so I guess its time for the paint booth?
