Ok, I sawed off a part of chassis. :smile:
But then, there was another problem:

I had to remove these protuberances by file - they hindered me to put the shell on the chassis properly.

ALCO FA is to be built! :smile:

Some improvements of the PVM kit, made by RailTT.

MTL coupler is mounted on the bodyshell.

You need the glossy surface for applying the decals. The glossiness will help make the decal film disappear. Once the decals are all in place, apply a matte clear coat over top, and it will look good.
