MILW motor car #5900 / 5901

Started with building MILW's shop-built motor car #5900 / 5901
Shell was done by cutting & fitting an Aristo FA/FB-combo. The nose was shortened and raised and modified in shape with resin. The cab's roof was leveled and adapted to the rest of the slightly reshaped roof.
