Okay so after 8 months I've now finally come to the end of the first chapter of 16mm scale modelling. With this, my new brake van.

It is a modified IP Engineering kit with saftey chains, handrails, foot boards and a furnished interior built from scratch.

The van is weighted wth a fishing weight under the chassis and hidden by a box ala LMS style.

 

The roof is removable to access the interior which include a seating area with table, a stove (built from plastic tube and a seal-able bottle top)

Now I've finished another chapter of 16mm scale, I'm gonna give it a bit of a rest, save some running and concentrate on some 4mm project I have in mind.
