Provincial wagons CIE ex-GSWR 10 ton brake van, a photo build sequence for the record in its own thread.



Parts assembled, deflashed and filed where required.



Getting used to these fiddly brake stuff gubbins



Kit goes together nicely once the parts are assembled and have been prepared



Brake stuff added and kadee coupling added.



Prior to dumbing down the former GSWR logo



Even though the brake wheels won't be visible from outside once the roof goes on they had to be painted red.



Prior to final fitting of the roof



Had to put a little man on the veranda. A very pleasant wagon I'm delighted to have on the layout. Straddles my preferred era nicely.

That looks really good Noel, I also replaced with wire the brake hangers and step supports it makes such a difference. And I put a brake cross beams between the brake blocks plus a longtitudal fake pull rod. A really nice kit thats a pleasure to build, it looks so good behind a J15  :tumbsup:
