Accurail does a lot of work to figure out the prototypes that at the very least, come close. Not “eight wheels just like the prototype” close, but close enough that you have to know the prototype to be able to judge.
And if you have that prototype photograph, and there are modifications you can make to bring the car closer to a “real authentic model,” well, this IS a list of modelers, is it not? Make those modifications, write up what you did, and share, please.
