GWR Siphon O1,O2 and O3 body kit HO
GW35-S02 GWR Milk Van O2 HO(Size:1.22MB) Download
This kit is based on the GWR siphon versions O1 through O3. Sufficient parts are provided to complete one of the versions. This kit represents the two door version of this vehicle. The kit consists of a MDF base with card overlays. THere are two end profiles with parts for three different end types.
This is the HO (3.5 mm scale) version of this kit. The OO (4mm scale) version of this kit is also available from this website.
The principal difference between the versions was the end framing and profile. There were a number of types and variants of the GWR milk van. The vehicles were modified over their lifetimes. In general it is advisable to have access to a good reference work with photographs. Apart from articles in the model railway press (Eg: Model Railway Journal Christmas. 1985 and January/February 1986) an entire book has been written on the development of these vehicles. “Great Western Siphons” (by Jack N. Slinn, Pendragon books 1986 in association with the Historical Model Railway Society) describes and enumerates these vehicles in detail.
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.
