Universal F Series A Unit Kit

Universal F Series A Unit Kit --This kit can be built into any F Series A Unit:

 F2 A, F3 A Phases I-IV, F7 A Phase I "Early & Late" as well as Phase II, and F9 A. 

 In addition due to our design, many of the unique modifications done over the years by the railroads themselves are achievable with little effort.  Such modifications as a mixture of low and high fans, differing types of between the porthole carbody filters, even the relocation of the portholes, or their complete elimination.  As well as the very interesting mix for example of F9 side panels with an F3 roof configuration or vice versa.  The choice is entirely yours!

Sample assembled model photos:

 First is an EMD F7 A, an F7 A, Phase Ib ("late") to be more specific. It differs in two small regards from the original 1952 "Globe" (later the Athearn F7A, still in-production to this day)  the roof top "Winterization Hatch" (directly over the rear-most roof top cooling fan, an optional and included detail on our kit) and the cab door with the smaller window and integral drip molding.  Aside from those two details, this model follows the same specific prototype as did the 66 year-old Athearn/Globe original F7 tooling.

The second locmotive pictured is an F3 Phase II (early) with tall fans,
