Long Winded Old Fart
Just finished up my 1st Slug today. Little weird & it's a dummy. Built from the smashed AC4400 shell & Frame & something else. had to fix the broke frame & shorten it about an inch & a quarter.

It's whatever you want it to be. It could be a slug or a bug in a rug. I haven't ever thought of making something like this until I saw them here on the forum. I've got another one on the bench that I've been working on for about a week. This one will be powered.Looks good Larry...
now here's my question: is it a slug or just a B-unit? looks like it still has a prime mover with the exhaust, fans, and access doors still intact...
Along the lines of people thinking these might end up being gen-sets, I do have another project i will do.....eventually....Got the major work done on the first hood. Now lots of body filler and sanding to do yet.
My dad was a huge BN fan! So I will start getting pictures of his stuff, and mine, and get a photo album going. You might enjoy all the custom painted and weathered stuff he built and bought over the years!Nice stuff, especially the BN units!
(I'm a wee bit biased there)
Thanks! He had the flat green for yard-ish power, and did like a tuscan/box car brown for road power. I might try to adopt some sort of striping, or something into it.@Riverrat, good stuff you have there. I like the color of your dads freelanced road. Reminds me of army green. Keep us posted on the unfinished projects.
