Yes this project is not dead.  I caught it just short of rigormortis setting in.  Life, time availability and lack of ambition has reared it's ugly head over the past few years, but on occasion I have been able to do little bits hear and their.  All parts of this locomotive have been rebuilt from the ground up from the last SD40-2 updates I had with the exception of the trucks.  There is still many pieces to make.  I just hope that what little ambition I have doesn't go away any time soon.  My hope is to eventually make all the different variants of the the 40-2 that EMD made for the U.S. market from the first 40-2 in 1972 through 1984.  Then maybe the ones for the Canadian market to 1988.  Time will tell.  Updates for any of my projects will be slow for the foreseeable future but they will happen.  In the meantime enjoy a couple renders.  After this one I have no intention of updating this model. (I've heard that one before)

(Pay no mind to the low quality trucks. They will eventually be rebuilt.)

Maybe you can teach me how to build something like this. I'd love to do so.
