Very well done! The alterations are rather small and simple but make a huge difference :wave:

Your image shows a 1st class coach with the later brown roof.
Your model is a 2nd class coach with the initial grey roof.

But here you can see some 2nd class coaches of this type:

To LVG1: I forgot to mention that my modifications were done for both 1st and 2nd class coaches from KUEHN, article numbers: 41610 (1st), 41630 & 41632 (2nd). By the way thank you for the photo! Nice! About the photo I have posted, to be honest with you, I have no idea that it was really taken of a coach with brown-varnish roof. I know you are right! I looked again today at the photo on that web site and I can't really distinguish the color of the roof because of way the daylight shines on the coach.

*slightly off topic* but, what are the differences between the Kuhn's and Tillig's versions of these cars?
