    CNW and DT&I Gong bell Nose plates. Adding those gong bells to the front of the CNW or DT&I diesels has always been one of those tasks that always gave me trouble. As the number of models needing these bells grew, a easier method was researched and found. These new plates just fold up with sides, bottom and a top cap and slide into an opening you make in the nose with the aid of a included template. There are three nose plates per package. Gong bells are not included but any of the commercially available bells will fit.

    Etched liftrings? Yup, four different sizes are available. These are not just some flat rings you are supposed to imagine as being round rings. While these rings are not the 'round' rings of the prototype, once installed and painted they will appear round. And no where not talking about the eyelet/hole being round. We are talking about the round rod that forms the ring. Our rings have halves that are folded together to give them thickness. But each half has two levels of etch. So, once folded together, you have three levels of etch. And once painted, the paint fills in the edges leaving a round liftring. Four different sizes are available to cover most sizes used on EMD diesels. Each package contains 48 lift rings.

    Here are a few applications for the different sizes of rings on EMD units.

    3 3/8 X 1 3/4 - DB hatches and side of long hood end

    2 3/4 X 1 1/2 - Radiator hatch

    2 3/8 X 1 3/8 - Inertial filter hatch and exhaust hatch

    First generation EMD SD units had lift lugs on the sides of the long hood infront of or to the rear of the intake screens.

    EMD F7 Grilles information


    Not sure where else to put this but, We have been getting requests from modelers looking for our HO scale F7, F9 and FP7 grilles. Well, we have no plans to do any F unit grilles in HO. One grille does not fil all. Too many models being made to try cover them all or figure out which ones to cover. And there are several other grilles already out there. We feel it best we use that time to develop a few other projects that are not already available. Thank you for your understanding!
