UP's M-23 rebuilt McKeen

Some progress on the M23 in 1/29 scale:
Aristo Heavyweight's basic body, USA Trains' NW-2 front truck (side frames will be modified) and Aristo Sierra's rear truck.
Parabolic front and round rear have a styrene sublayer on a frame and were covered with some layers of glass fiber & resin.
The pilot's additional tapered off lower extension  is under construction

  1. That's a nice model, if you would like more photos of the M-23, I can send them to you. My email is admin@McKeenCar.com

    Also, I have seen that you are building a couch car, possibly &-18 or T-19, If so, then I suppose these will be painted in the Yellow and Brown, as the M-23 ran with Coach Car #499 before March 1935.
