HO scale detail parts kits

In association with Kaslo Shops and Plano, in 2010 we manufactured a detail parts fret for the original version of the VIA F40PH-2D. By using the existing parts on the market (see the modelling page for a comprehensive parts list) and some creative work by the modeller on the underbody, our new fret has finally allowed modellers to make a very close representation of the ubiquitous VIA F40PH-2D.

Modellers may be interested in our free, downloadable 22-page instruction document in PDF format (2.36 MB). This document includes application instructions for each part on the fret, including bending diagrams and several key prototype detail photos. ***FINAL Version FIVE released October 29, 2012!***


With Rapido Trains releasing their RTR F40PH-2D ren rebuild locomotive in 2017, there is no longer any incentive for us to release a separate add-on cabinet etch kit. Consider this project cancelled.
