​The pack contains detailed cast resin parts that glue together to enable a quick assembly of the coach body and underframe.

 

This freelance 4 wheel coach would be an ideal project for someone wanting to have a go at coach building in 7mm scale.  From a modelling perspective the vehicle is ideal for light railway layouts, rural branch lines, industrial layouts or for use as mess coaches in works trains. Many pre-grouping companies used stock of very similar designs, so when its painted up in your favourite livery, many people wont know the difference!

 

A cast resin chassis / underframe is included with this pack, this can either be used as it is by drilling the axle boxes to accept bearings and fixed axles, or used as a dummy to conceal one of the commercial etched brass compensation units that are widely used in this scale.

The photographs show the parts you will receive plus some construction images and an almost complete model to show how a finished vehicle could look.

 

This kit is supplied with a pre-formed styrene roof section.

 

On the sample model, buffers and door handles were recovered from a second hand scrap coach, steps and lamp irons were folded up scrap brass etch, and door grab handles made from staples. Running boards are cut from plasticard.The only new items were the wheels and top hat bearings. O gauge modelling doesn't need to be expensive!
