Technical: Building upside-down

So here's the problem:
I wanted to re-create in Lego a Swedish famous electric locomotiv, namely the DA-class engine.
The original engine has a small "lip" (or edge) along side its base, which covers the wheels just a little, so
the ideal lego base would be a 6x24 train base plate in dark-red (or reddish-brown), which has the same kind of lip,
when the wheel boogie is assembled under it.
But, Unfortunately a dark-red train base plate is a not-existing combination....
After some creative thinking I found out that dark-red panels 1x2x1 mounted upside down, gives the same look
and overall dimensions as a train base plate.
So this is how the upside-down built baseplate looks:
And this is the final result, a Swedish class DA engine.
Please share your own solutions, for this kind of "problem" :
