NER Birdcage Brake Van

Recommended Posts

This is my first effort at scratch building a piece of rolling stock and is a NER Birdcage Brake van in 3mm/ft scale, 12mm gauge.


The body is made of plasticard with wood for the vertical timbers. The undercarriage is a 3mm society frame modified and simplified ( no brake levers etc. ) and with the addition of running boards.


The boards were originally plastic but they bowed so some of the brass from the Emmyton build was used to create a much better set - although not documented in the build topic this change was done pre-deadline.


Paint was brushed on as it was pre-airbrush purchase and I was unable to get hold of suitable transfers.
