Ready for the Paint shop - the first item of stock built specifically for Litlington.

 

This is a Cambrian (C98) kit of an SECR Van, purchased on something of a whim earlier in the week. I intend to use mostly LBSCR stock, however a fascinating discussion in the Pre-Grouping section on 'Foreign Wagons' - http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/92231-foreign-wagons/ - has given me a few ideas, so when I saw this I couldn't resist.

 

It went together in around an hour, and I'm really quite pleased with it. The detail doesn't show up very well here, thanks to poor lighting for photos over my workbench (or our dining table, as the Mrs refers to it ;) ), but I was impressed with it, especially the locking mechanism for the drop-down door.

 

It'll need three-links (in stock) and a coat of paint, but for £7.40, I think it was an hour and the price of a packet of fags and a paper, well spent!
