I'm also working on making an HO scale streamlined K2 by modifying a
Bachmann J shell to fit a Bachmann 4-8-2 chassis. The aforementioned
J-Juniors article is the best single resource I've found, though it is
all prototype information. Kurt Kramke had an article in the 20-1,
Jan/Feb 2004, Arrow, on converting a Bachmann Spectrum USRA 4-8-2 into
a K2/K2a prior to their streamlining, and Jim Nichols includes some
notes on modeling the streamlined Ks in his Tennessean column from the
same issue. I am not aware of any other article detailing the modeling
process for making a streamlined K2/K2a. I do recall reading some
discusion of this project years ago either on this list or an online
Marty Flick

Subject: Jim Gillum Article on Modeling Streamlined K

 As I mentioned on the Zoom convention, I'm working on kitbashing a
streamlined K from a Bachmann J. I found the April-May-June 2007 issue
of The Arrow with narrative and photos about "Baby Js" but no luck yet
finding the modeling article by Jim Gillum. Can someone with better
index files than me, or a copy, point me to that article? Thanks!
