Nice looking car, but the two rivet heads on the bolster tabs reveal it as a fake. No bowtie. Don’t feel bad, Charlie, I use the Intermountain body as the basis for three CB&Q XM-32A cars, and I didn’t remove and replace the rivets, either. Most don’t know or care.

Here’s the $10 kit finished, roof toned down with brown and black dry pigments, a little brown also run down the rivet seams and white oils below the door to denote a few broken flour sacks while in transit.  Did the Q paint the roof walks?
