EMD Front Lift Lugs - E & F units - 2 Pair
Introduction Model railroading is fun and for many of us part of that fun modeling a particular prototype, even during a specific time. Railroads and equipment manufacturers have given us a bewildering number of modifications to model. These are often unique items and not practical for model makers to mass produce or install at the factory. Riding to the rescue are model makers like Hi-Tech Details!
Hi-Tech Details of Ukiah, California, have been around for a while supplying the HO market with innovative details sets. They market highly detailed accessories for correcting, scratchbuilding, and modifying model railroad locomotives and cars. In addition, Hi-Tech Details (HTD) also produces model kits of complete cars, and line side items.
Hi-Tech Details also makes models and accessories for N and O scale.
Hi-Tech Details website is hi-tech, too! Many of their sets and kits feature click-to-access how-to features and instructions. However, the link below does not take you directly to this set on their site, rather to their On-Line Catalog; next to Categories: is a drop down list and you want number 2: HO Scale Detail parts - Diesel - plastic & Rubber.
EMD Front Lift Lugs - E & F unitsHTD currently lists 32 plastic and rubber diesel detail sets on their site. This set is packed in a plastic bag stapled to HTD’s vivid fuchsia and black card label. It allows you to detail two Electro Motive Division covered wagon units. HTD also makes EMD Rear Lift Lugs for E & F units, set HTD-6019.
You get two sprues of two lugs, crisply molded in gray styrene without ejector marks, seam lines or sink marks. However there is a slight amount of flash.
The only mounting information is: See prototype photos for exact placement.. Wise counsel for anyone trying to model a specific loco!
ConclusionThis is a simple set of simple parts to allow you to modify your EMD E & F units. They are nicely molded and I think you will be happy with them.
