Variations/Modifications incorporated into the kit

Low front / High front: The first twenty V2s were built with Low front tenders. The remainder (except for eleven with flared top, low front, tenders which are not covered by the kit) were fitted with High front tenders.

Fall plate: The original arrangement was for a fixed extension to the locomotive cab platform to suit the fall plate, which was hinged on the tender front plate. Starting with No. 4889 (built August 1941) the fall plate was transferred to the locomotive cab platform and a wood platform was provided at the front of the tender for the fall plate to rest on. The existing engines were brought into line as they passed through shops.

Coal doors: From November 1940 the slatted coal doors, fitted to the high front tenders, were gradually replaced by solid doors.

Frame guard irons: These were omitted from NE area tenders from 1938 onwards.

Rear division plate: The tenders were built with a low division plate across the water pickup dome. From the mid-fifties onwards most had this plate replaced with a higher plate further forward together with a new design of water pickup dome. The angles, which attached the original division plate to the tank top, were not removed. Inside the coal space a sloping plate was provided, probably at the same time.

Spring Hangers: All the V2 tenders had short spring hangers. Earlier tenders paired with engines of other classes were initially fitted with long spring hangers.

Lamp brackets: Tenders for the Great Central section initially had an extra bracket on the left hand side.
