This locomotive fits over a LifeLike GP 18.A bit of filing might be needed for making the motor fit the body.

Side frames have to be removed from the body shell and attached to the donor mechanism (a Life Like GP 18 - the older version with the plastic frame - NOT the newer metal split frame version).
The donor's bogie side frames filed flat and super gluing the 3D frames on.

Has anyone completed this model? I have a donor GP 18 mech that is waiting. I'm just hesitant to pull the trigger on something I haven't seen completed.

Of course you can, if you want to use a superior mechanism, cut away! But not for the faint hearted. Also the older mech is much cheaper , at least a third the cost of the newer mech. If you attempt this please let me know how it goes.

If the shell isn't made of metal why can you not use a split frame gp 18?
