What they look like to me is just a variation of SP's icicle breakers and those you CAN get. Gold Metal Models has them in the SP PA detail set. They're items 10 and 11. I know its a lot of unneeded detail parts just for them, but they look really nice when done.
You just have to decal it.
HiI made my Park Car starting with a Con-Cor car as it is much closer to the prototype. I modified the window layout a little, removed the Cal. Zephyr style tail light, removed the side skirts as appropriate, added grabs and the VIA style class lights and tail light. The car was built to be the Tremblant Park, which was one of 2 cars that received trial lights built into the rear of the cars, on either side of the tail door. The lights were removed and stainless steel panels added to cover the holes. New lights were then added to all Park Cars above the rear windows. I chose this car because it was the one Laura & I travelled from Vancouver to Toronto on in 2012. There is no better rail car view than that in a true dome car.CheersSteveNZ
HiI made these for my IM FP-9 using small office staples. a relatively simple process with the rear facing braces superglued to the actual breakers. They are secured inside the shell with superglue as well.
I love the headlight! How did you model the dual-beam insert? Chris
The headlight was made using a casting of an Atlas RS-3 headlight sanded to fit inside the F-unit headlight opening. It was painted black and the lenses can either be painted chrome or made using MV lenses. The whole thing can then be covered with a clear resin or Weld Bond in this case. Not sure you'd get as good a result if they were illuminated, but it could be done.CheersSteveNZ
You know, those twin sealed beam conversions seem like another good @Lemosteam project.
