Hansom MAN


Recommended Posts

During the 'Showcase' I was very impressed by the road vehicles displayed by Jim Smith Wright on New Street - particularly the very smart BRS MAN - kinda fell for for it and I was really surprised at it's humble origins. A little later on I saw one on the DEMU stand, so I paid the £2 asked and trotted home wondering what to do with it.

 

The story so far...

A tractor unit chassis.

Seeing if it fits.

A bit of a tidy.

Some panel detail - needs a bit more work.

 

 

I had hoped of doing one of P&O's tractor units working out of Southampton but they had 'sleeper' cabs (and another axle!)... So I shall have to look for another subject.

Cool

 

Its worth lopping off the chassis so that the back lines up with the wheel arches.
