  • GWR Milk Van type O2 : This vehicle, designated O2, was a six wheeled Milk or Fish van. The O2 van preceded the related O1 and O3 six wheeled vans. It shared similar features, especially twin double doors on each side. The number of doors was the main visual difference between these vehicles (O2,O3,O1) and the later O4 van which had three double doors on each side. O2 vans had a low single arc roof profile. O2 vans were converted from open carriage trucks. The GWR code name for milk vans was SIPHON.

    This kit features:

    • Laser cut MDF carcass
    • Overlaid card Panels
    • 3D printed roof
    • Axleguards (D3D-05)

    A difficult and tedious task encountered when modelling pre-grouping rolling stock is the preparation, cutting out and alignment of the windows, droplights and panels.

    This kit reduces the tedium, complication and labour associated with the construction of a detailed model of a coach body using accurate laser cut layers conveniently assembled in our SmartFrame without specialist knowledge to give the same quality, or better, as traditional methods using plastic or etched components.

    There are precisely aligned layers for the coach sides which reproduce window apertures, droplights, window frames, panelling, and beading. Floor, partitions, roof members, ends complete with steps and panelling are included together with pre-cut glazing. In summary, all that is required to make a convincing representation of this early panelled coach body.

    Build impressive rolling stock using this kit as the basis of your next project.
