Don't know if the old MPC Hi-Cube would work. Never tried it, never will. Probably would be way too tall, though.
I can hardly be called a rivet counter, but proportion is very important to me. Lionel's attempts at rebranding some traditional O27 for Flyer look awkward to my eyes unless heavily modified. As I've probably mentioned before, the old Lionel "Scout" double door boxcar is almost perfect in proportion as is for S. Jerry's conversion shows that, although the graphics are a little off, IMO.
Cars like these from the low end Lionel Junction sets have wonderful graphics that would really fit right in after a conversion:
They even have some undercarriage details - sorta. semi. Passes the most layouts are above eye level test.
