Actually, no.

I will make one suggestion, which is to change the name, corrugations and roof to match on of the Budd-built "Pine" series cars:

Pine Dawn

These cars are almost spot-on for the source material you are working from.

More photos:

Pine Dale
Pine Gem
Pine Grove
Pine Leaf
Pine Mesa
Pine Dale

Oh, and get rid of the red lights on the end. Those weren't added until after 1980 or so.

I attentively read Sgoti's comments and I cannot discover any hateful or sarcastic statements. On the contrary, he apologizes several times for perhaps giving the wrong impression of being over-critical. I suggest you reread his postings and forget the idea that he is insulting you. He is not. He delivers useful information more than once.
And if he made these suggestion in an earlier stage of the development of the kit, that would be more than a reason to listen to what he says. I'm sure Diederick agrees.
And even if he were out to insult you, so what? We are talking about our hobby here... paper representations of big things, made for fun.
Keep on showing your impressive efforts of putting together kits (I wish I had your skills) and accept that on several areas there are people with more knowledge about the subject than you have. I ran into that fact all my life.

Ab, thank you for your words of support.

To Erik's (and others) defense, I can see how my words may have been interpreted as sarcastic.

What is clear in the mind of the writer (myself) is not always interpreted the same by the mind of the reader (everyone else).

Unfortunate choice of wording on my part.

Sgoti: I was the one who felt somewhat hurt by your unfortunate remarks. Now do I have to read this as a very veiled apology?

DAdB:

This was a blanket apology to everyone involved.

I did not want to leave anyone out.

If you need a direct apology, then I am sorry you chose to read into my words something that was not there.

I provided you with what information I was able to when you first asked.

I am sorry it was not up to your standards.

I have provided you with suggestions to make your model more correct and therefore (hopefully) more desirable.

I am through trying to make amends, and am through offering any more information.

I do wish you the best of luck with your endeavors.

Glenn, thanks again for the very useful information. I hope that the design still can be amended for the most eye-catching features.

Regards,
Erik

You are certainly welcome, Erik. I look forward to seeing the test-build, no matter what the final design happens to be.

At 1:48, this will be quite the model!

Again, best wishes.
