7mm Narrow Gauge O-16.5

VANS

 
Covered Goods Van pack of parts including roof (NG09)

These goods vans are a freelance design intended to reflect the common features of this kind of vehicle. The sides and ends feature planking and bolt detail together with the characteristic outside framing so typical of late Victorian goods vehicle design. The pack includes two side castings featuring a pair of hinged doors, a pair of ends and a pre-formed plain styrene roof section.

 

The parts glue together easily with superglue enabling the rapid construction of the body shell. The builder is only required to fabricate a simple floor from styrene card or similar and source a suitable chassis. The body is designed to conceal a ready to run OO gauge chassis, or alternatively and etched brass compensated unit could be used. The photographs show the parts you will receive together with test build and painted sample to illustrate what the final vehicle could look like when finished and detailed. 

 

The finished body dimensions in all types are approx. 92mm x 42mm.
