High nose for Atlas centuries?

Does anybody make a high nose conversion for the Atlas alcoC-628 or C-630s?

Thank you!

Mark4Design did way back, if I remember right.   If you can't find one of those, maybe use a shortened Atlas C420 nose?

Would this work?

I wish there was a C425 car body, including long hood, to go with that. As a SPS/BN modeler, I could use some.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Jeff Briggs did a C-425 kit to convert a LL C-424 to a C-425.

Also, there's been the discussion about using a C628 body to create a non-dynamic bake version of a C425.  This simple shortening of the C628 makes an excellent C425 model...  but if you want dynamic brakes, you'd have to graft them onto the C628 shell after grabbing them from a C420, RS11 or C424 shell.
