Yep, that's the model I was thinking of. Ends and roofs are
easily replaced, but it looks like the CP
car has wider doors than the USRA box, so that pretty much
changes the side geometry.

you’re thinking of, then the answer would be “not really”.
are the differences i am quickly aware of:
incorrect roof (mostly just too thin at the edge),
roof hatches (not on the CPR car)
this model has 5/5/5 eds, not the CPR 7/8 ends.
should be a stem winder brake (there may have been a few
cars converted to power brakes before the hoppers were
removed, but I doubt it).
different design of hoppers - CPR cars had a pair of
hoppers centred at the doors. Photos from one of the
Railroad magazines of the 1920s show this:
Is this identical to the Tichy D&H box car (USRA
converted to cement service) ?
