I posted some pictures of this project, so here will be a "build" thread. My project will be to morph this KATO C44-9 into the BEL : I hope mine turns into this : I have begun the 4 color paint scheme : Now the chassis mods and decoder install. Decoder is a new ESU LokPilot 5 Micro. I have modified the original factory light board to solder decoder wires to for power supply and motor tabs : There are several decoder wires to snip off, after I decide on lighting for this beast. I sanded about an 1/8+" from the top tabs and rounded the front and rear tabs so that the shell fit on chassis without any rocking back and forth. Should be a fun but rewarding project.
