Mess/Tool Van Body Kit (NG30)


This is a  set of parts to aid the construction of a narrow gauge Tool Van / Mess van suitable for 7mm narrow gauge layouts, O-16.5 gauge and similar.


This detailed set of cast resin parts has been produced from my own moulds and masters. This vans is a freelance design intended to reflect the familiar features of this type of vehicle. The sides and ends feature planking and bolt detail together with characteristic outside framing. The pack includes two side castings with double doors and droplight windows, a pair of planked ends with windows, a preformed plain styrene roof section and styrene floor piece. Also included is glazing, a single lamp chimney for the roof and roof vents.


This is a body only kit, allowing the builder to fit a chassis of choice according to gauge or preferred design.


The parts glue together easily with superglue enabling the rapid construction of the body shell. The body is designed to conceal a ready-to-run OO gauge chassis, or alternatively an etched brass unit could be used.


The parts are interchangeable with other long 4-wheel vans in my range. More adventurous builders might spot opportunities for modification or 'kit bashing' using the parts as a basis for something else.


The photographs show the parts you will receive together with a test built and painted sample to illustrate what the final vehicle could look like as part of the works train. To Avoid confusion, please note that the other wagons, structures and scenery shown in some photos are not part of this listing.


The finished body dimensions are approx. 92mm x 42mm.
