I have not had experience of making Belpaire boxes for USA locos but have made plenty for 0 scale models of Great Western Railway locos here in UK. Although your loco is plastic, I assume, I would make the box from sheet brass.The angles of the bends in relation to the footplate line is all important and I find brass is the best material for getting this right.
You will have a lot of fun/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crying.gifgetting it all right but the result will be worth it.
