SP GP9e 3770
This model was constructed around 1990 from a Front Range brand GP9,
with a Mashima can motor added. I installed numerous detail parts, as well as
custom painting and weathering to capture the essence of a typical rebuilt SP GP9e.
For this GP9e, I went whole hog with the full SP light packages at
both ends. The distinctive rooftop air filter box was fabricated from
a length of rectangular styrene tube capped at each end with styrene
sheet. Small access doors were grafted into the ends below the
number boards. Added plumbing was installed on the air tanks
behind the fuel tank. The skirting along the side sills was modified
per prototype photos. Compare the fan arrangement to SP 3882.
