*********** Clearance item **********
This 45 foot coach built to diagram 277 (D277) was one of several similar vehicles which were designed by Howlden for the GNR in the 1890’s.. This vehicle combined a toilet, smoking compartment, open third area and a guards compartment. This vehicle is described in “Historic Carriage Drawings” Volume 1 by N. Campling. ISBN 1 899816 04 6 page 94. Twelve of these vehicles were constructed. Most of these vehicles survived through grouping and nationalisation.
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 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 four precisely alligned 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 the essentails to make a convincing representation of this early panelled coach body.
