This NYC streamlined Hudson was built from an American Hirail AF conversion kit (plastic loco superstructure, trailing truck, tender shell, tender truck sideframes), plus numerous S Scale Locomotive & Supply (SSL&S) parts, brass and steel wire, sheet brass and styrene, and S- and HO-scale details. Although the AH shells were pre-painted and lettered, Dick removed and replaced all the original lettering (except the herald on the pilot). Much of the locomotive was repainted because of the superstructure revisions.
