A little bit of progress today on this build. I've replaced the top panel in the centre above the doors I removed on these two 16 Tonners. Suitable width plastic sheet was used for this. Trusty Micro-Strip then replaced the beading and door locking latches.
I've also tidied up the area around the bottom of the doors to try to look more prototypical. The kit doors are designed to open but in this case are glued shut.
Essentially other than the Lanarkshire Model Supplies buffers I need to order and fit the wagons will be ready for the paint shop.
I would like to add the tie bars. Does anyone know of suitable brass strip for the job?
Also I know some of these wagons were vacuum braked with brake cylinders. Were others just through piped?
