It's a good choice for a prototype, but...

1. are you sure your photos show an HO model? maybe it's N scale?
2. tongue-in-grove wood sides don't have 1/2" gaps between boards
3. you might want to replace the Equipco brake wheel with something
a lot better http://www.kadee.com/htmbord/page2021-2031-2041.htm
4. sill steps have already been mentioned. at least they look easy
to replace
5. do the trucks look weird to you? it seems like the journal box lids
are almost vertical or even inverted
