Had the idea to hotrod my version, with eight straight pipes


If only I was good for Photo-Shopping in a spoiler and a drag chute ...  :)

Model looks good.


Somewhere on the shelf is a book about Baldwin diesel locomotives,
where a paragraph, or caption, about giving one straight pipes like that,
does indeed use the "hotrod" phrase.

Those radiators are really nice castings.


Model looks straight off the pages of a 1950s - 70s Model Railroader,
or similar era Railroad Model Craftsman magazine.
 
In the era when people built their own models because ... building stuff !
