Some custom-painted Con-Cor MP54 models, this time around. All of these were painted based on photo references.

Bonus round: this is a BM62 full-baggage kitbashed out of the baggage ends of two separate MBm62 RPO-baggages. It's a little off on the door accuracy, and the number is wrong for a full-baggage, but it's a decent stand-in.

They look fantastic! I admit to being an Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) fan, having grown up under the wires in Sydney AU.

I'm also a bit of an EMU fan, as I've got operating models of a bunch of different classes.

They're some of my favorite things to run at shows, as they're not commonly modeled, and lots of folks notice them.

Not pictured, I also have a Jersey Arrow I, and some Reading heavyweights/Blueliners.
