This Martin Finney designed kit can be used to build virtually all the variations of the 10ft 6in wheelbase un-fitted vans with timber underframes. The LSWR and SR built nearly 3,000 of these vans and they lasted to early BR days in capital service, longer in departmental and Isle of Wight use. From late LSWR days they were ‘pooled’ in common use so could be seen throughout the country. The kit includes single block, double block, Morton and lift-link brake gears and a choice of Panter or Warner axleboxes.

This is an accurate kit to the correct dimensions and covers the following diagrams:

SR diagram 1410 - Ordinary covered goods wagon (built 1885 - 1912)
SR diagram 1413 - Ventilated van for butter traffic (built 1898 - 1899)
SR diagram 1484 - Meat van for goods traffic (built 1886 - 1889)

It has a pre-formed roof and uses etched brass construction to bring out the detail of the original wagon with whitemetal side framing and end stanchions, axleboxes/springs and buffers.

It can be built for 00, EM and P4 gauges and incorporates springing as standard.

Comprehensive instructions and diagrams are provided.

Wheels (3ft 1½ in split-spoke), coupling chain (3-link on the prototype), buffer heads of your choice and paint/transfers are needed to complete the kit.
