BBÖ ET 10/ ÖBB 4041 electric railcar

Now I've already had this railcar for more than a year sitting nearly finished on my shelf. I think I designed it in 2015, so nearly 3 years ago! I did change the bogies quite some time as I wasn't very happy with the original design. I built it upside down now and it's much better! The pantographs were tricky as well so I came up with this design which I like much more - it's 100% puristic and I didn't have to cut anything :)

 

Some background:

8 railcars of this kind were built in 1928 in dark green livery. After WWII they were incorporated in the new Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) and reclassified to 4041. At some point they got a dark blue and tan livery, which is represented by this model. They were in service until 1973 and and seem to have been quite reliable.
