In my quest for models unique to the Frisco, I decided the modified S-2 was a must. The basic model is the Atlas S-2 from which I removed the cab and all molded on grab irons. From the few photos I've seen the new nose resembled an Alco RS-2 and that's what I used for the modification. After installing it and using Squaron Green for the splice cover, I filled in the walkway and added a piece for the handrail. I then installed new grabs (I had to fab the arced corner grabs), Alco style lift rings, and modified the end handrails to accept a walkover. A coat of basic black paint and Oddball decals completed the model. Larry F.
