What are you doing to get the complex curvature? And is it a solid model or is the inside empty (like a 1 mm thick shell)?

The file I'm using is a royalty free 3d file I found online. I didn't create it from scratch. I will be using two skins of the cab to create a thickness of around .05"

The number boards on the model are different from the prototype photo, is this on purpose? I assumed it was because the prototype photo was just a illustration of the general shape, but you did include the lower headlight ridge. Just curious.

The photo was just for a comparison of the general shape of the nose. The Santa Fe F7's seemed to have the raised number boards so it will be like that on the model.

I'm not sure if my information is correct.
But as far as I know, only the post-war E-units used the type of number boards seen in the photo. But because late F-units are planned to be made, the elevated ones would be correct.

Please, correct me if I'm wrong because I want to learn more... :wink:

I'm pretty sure that E-7s had raised number boards while E-8/9s had the flush style. Those are the 3 post WW2 E units types. All F units had raised number boards, though not all in the same exact location.
