Utgångspunkt för arbetet är två stycken 
The Fleischmann Rc2 ( 736 502 ) is used as base for the conversions

The models will be converted to two different versions, the Rc3 and the Rc6..

First step is to dismount all small details from the bodys

 

Nya etsdetaljer togs fram till loken.
- Ventilgaller för både Rc3 och Rc6
   och en box för placering på Rc6-lokets tak

For this conversion I produced a few new etched details

Ventilator grids and some kind of box that should be placed on the roof of the Rc6 version 


The round buffers will be replaced by square ones. Some more ethed details as hand rails and foot steps
 
The grid for the Rc6 version  
The roof plates on the Rc6 version differs from the Rc2 and Rc3 versions.
   
New plates were made from 0,25 mm styrene sheets and a few more details will be added to the roof..
Checking the measurments of the new plates
