Could we lighten the mood just a bit? What would you call this creation? The builder calls it an 'Alpha'. Is there a forum for it?

Agree.

Unfortunately these non-period creations are depleting the stock of 1900 parts, and resulting in the destruction of genuine cars

If I'm not mistaken this car is shown on page 251 of Dohren's "Millenove" with the caption "vehicle bodies with 1900 technology" and "Luzzago Bild."

Some of these designs are just cool in my book. As long as they're represented correctly no real harm.

As to the 1900 pieces. I'll bet that most/all of the "1900" parts are FNM 2300. Around the early 80's, weren't there something like 1000 of them, new, stuck in railyards in Europe rusting away as no one wanted to buy a car based on 50's technology? I know that there used to be a large availability of advertised mechanicals from the these cars (and their spares?) pretty cheap. Just a guess, but with all that mechanical stuff sitting around it got repurposed.
