GWR Siphon O4-1777 body kit
*** This kit is not available at present but will be re-issued soon ****
Only one vehicle was ever made to this specification, No. 1777. This vehicle was adapted from a standard milk van (type O4). The modified vehicle has louvered sides. In other respects it is similar to the standard O4 type vehicle. This vehicle is described, with a drawing, in the book “Great Western Siphons” by Jack N. Slinn, Pendragon books 1986 (in association with the Historical Model Railway Society). A photograph of this vehicle is contained on page 27 of “Model Railway Journal” January/February 1986.
A difficult and tedious task encountered when modelling rolling stock is the preparation and cutting out of the windows, droplights and panels. This kit reduces the tedium, complication and labour associated with the construction of a detailed model of a period vehicle body using accurate laser cut layers conveniently assembled in our SmartFrame without specialist knowledge to give the same quality as traditional methods using plastic or etched components.
Build impressive rolling stock using this kit as the basis of your next project.
