I opened my last 2 Parkside PC84 GWR Mink 'A' kits without paying too much attention.
Today while getting on with them I couldn't find the small black sprues on which the laminated
buffer heads are located, wagon hooks and a couple of drop door stops (Multi Purpose sprue).
These two 'new' kits also had the small ModelMaster decal sheet included, on reading I note
that all the markings are for BR period wagons and the sheet is clearly marked "Ex GWR 10T
Mink, Mink 'A', V12,V14,V16" Does this mean that they will cease to include the louvre vent ends?
I can imagine most sales are for GWR modellers and not BR periods. I could of course be wrong,
but think a letter to Peco to find out is called for.
It's such a small sprue and the lack of GWR period decals is not difficult, let's face it they never had
decals included before, I hope they will keep including the early buffer heads, probably not a deal breaker,
but retrograde ?
The two on the right fitted with couplings, test run and fine, still working on the other two. My 5th was for the club and not here at present.
