I recently got the GP38-2 in the "Pacific Pride" scheme,
and since there is no such thing as a "ready to run" model
so far, I had to take it apart to add details and fix other
In the process I discovered that the damned *** motor]
mounts are glued into the frame, and I destroyed them taking
the motor out to properly wire it.
If you do as I do and provide a hard, wired ground, or need to
take the motor out to fit DCC, be warned! Luckily I had spare
mounts but I doubt if most folk have a stash of them handy.
And the package won't let you store it in the box it came in
when you finish it- rooftop antennae, awnings, those things
will get smeared if you try to put it back in...
The more I see of this RTR paradigm, the less I like it...
