N scale FM 16-66?

I just saw an N scale EBay auction listing for a Kato H16-44. It appears to be a H16-44 body shell fitted onto a Kato RSC chassis. I can’t tell what brand body shell it is as it’s got a pretty heavy coat of custom paint on it. Anyway, I’m assuming this was an attempt at making a H16-66, maybe.

Does this come close to a H16-66, dimensionally? Thought I would throw it out there as it is an interesting combination.

I won't link to the auction, as to not hurt your chances, but it appears to be made from at least two Minitrix FM shells, with a modified (lengthened) long hood on one end and a short hood made for the other side out of another shell.

Ha, that’s quite a conglomeration!

 No worries on the link, not interested, although a Kato chassis for $40 wouldn’t be a bad deal.

Just making sure; didn't want to introduce new bidders if you were interested. It is definitely neat, though. Never thought to do something like that until I saw this.
