About this Vehicle:
This kit represents a Great Northern third class brake built to diagram 277 (D277).
This was one of several similar short bogie vehicles which were designed in the 1890’s. It combined a toilet, smoking compartment, open third area and a guard’s compartment and It 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.
This Kit features:
- Pre-printed sides and ends.
- 3D printed roofs
- Sturdy construction
- Axleguards or bogies (as appropriate for the vehicle)
A difficult and tedious task encountered when modelling 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 four 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.
