Superdetailing a couple of Atlas KATO RS-11's
What size radiator screen is needed to replace the plastic?
57" or 64" ?
There are 2 sizes offered by Detail Associates.
Any other suggestions to detail the radiator screens?

I don't know how close it is in size to the Atlas RS3, but i used the 57" and it fit perfectly. Cutting it out took some care not to detroy the sides or the rim on top. Usually the LHS will let you return the grille if the package can be brought back intact.

I didn't do anything to the grille, other than paint it, and it looks great. I am still waiting to see if i can come up with a Steam generator before i finish the model.

Good Luck,
