Does/did anyone make etched fans for the F2?
Thanks much,

Short answer... No...

But the Gold medal Models GP9/18 set has etched grills that are 36 inches with center caps. Pair that with Blma 36 inch fan blades and might get something that comes close enough...

See-through versions of the more 3D fan assemblies - like those on F7/9s and GP20s - seem like a good use of 3D printing.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

I don't recall Kato ever making F2s. Or are F2s basically the same as F3s?

There's only been two runs separated by a couple decades.
