C-36-7 Dynamic Intake Grills
Item: HTD-6006
Scale: HO

One of Hi-Tech Details’ many diesel detail sets is this injection-molded dynamic intake grills for the G.E. C36-7 locomotive.

C-36-7 Dynamic Intake Grills
HTD makes several sets to help modelers create specific versions of early to mid-generation General Electric road diesels.

It is molded in gray styrene and packaged in a plastic bag stapled to the black and vivid fuchsia Hi-Tech Details card backing.

Molding is hi-quality: no ejector marks or sink marks or flash. There are hefty sprue attachments to cut off.

Tying Up
This is a simple set of simple parts to allow you to detail your updated C36-7. They are nicely molded and I think you will be happy with them.

Hi-Tech Details
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. HTD offers dozens of parts and kits in 14 categories:

    1. HO Real Deal Rubber Air & Signal Hoses
    2. HO Diesel , Plastic & Rubber
    3. HO Passenger Cars, Plastic & Rubber
    4. HO Rolling Stock, Plastic & Rubber
    5. HO Diesel , Injection-Molded
    6. HO Rolling Stock, Injection-Molded
    7. HO Lineside Structures & Street Detail
    8. Paint & Adhesive
    9. Tools
    10. Sound & Lighting Equipment
    11. Special Direct Only Detail Parts, Molded Plastic
    12. HO Scale Structure Kits
    13. O Scale Detail Parts
    14. N Scale Detail Parts

Hi-Tech Details website is hi-tech, too! Many of their sets and kits feature click-to-access how-to features and instructions.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here – on RailRoadModeling.
Highs: Cleanly molded. Sharp detail.
