33.  I did that too
Got athearn locos and others and added high hoods and all details , painted them with an air brush for C&NW and sold all of them to the same fellow , It started out with him asking if I had more and I did . Others were the more expensive models you mentioned with the details in plasitc which is now what people seem to want who don;t want to do detailing .

Now by the time you do all the intricate work and figure the cost of detail parts you end up lucky to get you money back and the time is all for nothing so I gave up . But the ones I sold are ones I did for myself so the time was my pleasure then .
