Smokey Valley or a similar company offered RS-3 dynamic brakes at on time for HO scale.

  On the other hand, no one makes a credible RS-3 for the N&W.  The reason is the dynamic brakes that they came equipped with.  If you get some decent measurements and photos of the RS-3 at the museum in Roanoke, you can probably scratchbuild your hood with the dynamic brakes.  However, the first thing you will have to do is find a good RS-3 locomotive to start with.  Maybe Athearn's re-tooled MDC RS-3 will answer that problem, but you will still need to scratchbuild the dynamic brakes.
