PRR BP-20 A/B in 1/29

Progress on my BP-20 set so far:
The shells are from a 3D-printed kit (Kirkville Locomotive works). I did some modifications to resemble more to the protoype.

RI #798-799

First look to the progress on RI's big Davenport - I'll build the early appearance of the units with vertical openings on the hoods' sides and closed ends (black painted shell)

ALCO DL-202 'Black Maria'

Since the basic dimensions of ALCO's FA and its predecessor, the demonstrator DL-202 are almost the same a kitbash of a 'Black Maria' A-unit is mostly dealing with the modification of the nose and the side louvers & windows.
Some details (door handles, couplers, hoses, rivets and the mesh on the upper intakes) are still missing, but for a first impression here some shots of my model so far.



Some adjustment regarding the position of the shell on the chassis has to be done. also, the trucks are different to the standard AAR-type. Lack of the brake cylinders and a different shape of the equalizer bars are the prominent topics.

RP-210 almost fnished

Finally all decals, heralds, gaskets and striping is done. A final varnish and glassing will finish the unit.



MILW #5900 - revised roof

After finally locating an overhead view of #5900 I've revised the roof details & added the MILW-typical ribs



With a final varnish, glassing the windows & adding wires behind the baggage windows will the unit will be finished. Currently an appropiate 48-seat coach is under construction
