A useful vehicle for milk churn traffic tacked on the rear of the morning passenger service or conveying soft fruit ready for market.

 

These vans are a freelance design intended to reflect the common features of this type 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 and top louvres, a pair of louvered planked ends with top door, 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 an etched brass unit could be used.

 

The display model in the photos is riding on a modified version of my O-16.5, 4-wheel coach chassis kit. The roof has been detailed with a simple rain strip using micro strip. Torpedo roof vents were from the spares box.

 

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

 

The photographs show the parts you will receive together with a painted sample to illustrate what the final vehicle could look like when finished and detailed. (Please note the sacks, churns and other scenic items shown in some photos are not included and can be purchased separately.)
