Murphy Welded Roof

Does anyone know of a source for an HO model of the Murphy welded roof similar to that shown in SF-5210?

These were used on the bay window Hayne cabooses similar to X-3115 (X-3099 - X-3178).

The MILW ribside roof has been suggested as a source but the edges would required significant rework since the desired roof width seems to be 8'. Both Intermountain and Exactrail have made models for the MILW and they seem available.

A Branchline NYC Despatch roof has also been suggested but a good photo has not been found to see how close. and they appear somewhat rare.

Thx.
